Jumeirah collects 6 awards at the first Dubai Municipality Food Safety Awards 2012

Dubai, 14 January 2013: Jumeirah Group, the global luxury hotel company and a member of Dubai Holding, has been recognised with six awards at the first Food Safety Awards 2012 held last week.

The Jumeirah culinary team from Madinat Jumeirah and Burj Al Arab succeeded in winning the 1st and 2nd place respectively in the Best 5 Star Hotel award category, while the noodle house restaurant in Burjuman won in the Best Restaurant category. Highlights of the award also included Chef Pasquo King from Burj Al Arab, who collected The Food Safety Person of The Year in Operations, and Chef Christian Gradnitzer, the Group Culinary Director, who received a Special Recognition Award for his commitment and initiatives to promote food safety culture and social responsibility within Jumeirah. Finally, Jumeirah Hospitality came in 2nd place for the Best Catering Company award.

The Food Safety Awards were established in 2012 by the Food Control Department of the Dubai Municipality to recognise organisations that have consistently maintained high standards of food safety and individuals who have made a special contribution to enhancing food safety in Dubai. Jumeirah Group currently manages 115 restaurants and bars in Dubai, 12 in Abu Dhabi, and 36 more within its hotels, resorts and residences in London, Frankfurt, Mallorca, Istanbul, Rome, Shanghai and the Maldives.

“We take great pride in the fact that we are recognised for our culinary excellence and talent, as well as the vast choice of dining options that we offer our guests,” said Gert F. Kopera, Senior Vice President of Food & Beverage at Jumeirah Group. “This recognition of our commitment to food safety by Dubai Municipality means as much to our colleagues working in the outlets, as it does to the many thousands of guests who are served by them every day.

”Considered to be the first of its kind in the region, the annual Food Safety Awards will run alongside the Dubai International Food Safety Conference from 2014.
