The Gourmet Guardian would like to congratulate to the Executive Chef of the Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa Mr Jean-Marc Ruzzene and their Kitchen Hygienist Mrs Sarifa Bibi on becoming the FIRST hotel in Fiji to achieve external HACCP Certification from the Fijian Ministry of Health.
It is a legal requirement of the Food Act 2003 (Fiji Islands) and the Food Regulations 2009 (Fiji Islands) that all restaurants and hotels in Fiji achieve HACCP Certification by the 31st December 2015. The Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa achieved their HACCP Certification in February 2015.
NOTE: In 2012 the Fiji Times reported that businesses that did not achieve this certification would not be allowed to trade. There have many hotels in Fiji that have had the believe this won’t happen, but with less than seven months to go, anyone that hasn’t started needs to get a move on. The Gourmet Guardian can help all hotels and restaurants in Fiji achieve the same HACCP Certification result as the Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa.
