Ponthafren in Newtown has achieved the highest Food Hygiene rating possible. We are all very proud of the 5 star rating and we are aiming to maintain it for the future.

Ponthafren, for many years, has maintained a 4 star Food Hygiene rating at our Newtown centre, but this is the first time we have achieved the highest rating possible.

"All the staff have worked hard to achieve this amazing 5 star rating. I am so chuffed and excited that we've done this. It was an aim I set out when I first came to Ponthafren and I'm so happy it's been achieved! Thanks to all the staff and volunteers that have made this possible!" - Mel Jones, Centre Facilitator.

The Food Hygiene Rating Scheme helps consumers to choose where to eat out or shop for food by giving clear information about the businesses’ hygiene standards. The scheme is run in partnership with Food Standards Agency & local authorities in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Ponthafren has been working towards a 5* food hygiene rating at our Newtown centre for many years and we are pleased that consumers can eat food from our Kitchen safe in the knowledge that Food Hygiene is paramount.
