The Environmental Health Department says it has increased efforts to ensure food safety as it prepares for the staging of the 19th World Creole Music Festival.
Senior Environmental Health Officer with responsibility for food safety and port health, Clara Charles, says a number of measures have been taken by the department to include increased Food Handlers training sessions and assessments of caterers, vendors and accommodations among others.
Charles was speaking at the DFC weekly press conference leading up to the staging of the 19th WCMF today.
