Croeso Cynnes Cymreig

So what is the “CROESO” programme? It's a programme that combines actions and training and it's made up of three distinct components. You can take up all three- in any order- or complete just one, it's entirely your choice. If you do successfully complete all three however, you'll be able to use the distinctive, specially designed “Croeso Cynnes Cymreig –A Warm Welsh Welcome” logo as seen above, in your own marketing. Visit Wales will also feature it on any advertising you take out with us.

Food Standards Hygiene (Very Good)

The Food Standards Agency works closely with Local Authorities enforcement officers to ensure that food and feed law is applied across the entire food chain. After a thorough inspection from the local enforcement officers, businesses offering and/or dealing with food are awarded a rating ranging from 1 to 5, 5 being the highest standard. Gravesham will only promote 4 and 5 rated businesses on their tourism website so visitors can be reassured that hygiene standards are met.
