Food for Health Awards

The Environmental Health and Trading Standards teams work with Public Health to promote and implement the Food for Health awards as part of the Tower Hamlets commitment to reduce obesity.

The scheme is free for all food businesses. The only requirement is that you are to have a food hygiene rating of 3 and above and are prepared to make small healthier changes.

The scheme recognises the cafes, takeaways, restaurants, staff canteens and market traders that have made changes to the way that they prepare and cook their food to make it healthier for their customers – therefore making healthy choices easier.

The Food for Health award is tiered, so the award level achieved will depend on what changes are made. The tiers include Bronze, Silver and Gold.

On 1 September 2020 we launched a refreshed criteria with additional benefits including a booklet that explains the healthier choices for eligible food businesses.
