Professional Advice

Once you have identified the opportunity to serve food in your pub, contact your local EHO. There are lots of consultancy firms who support businesses through this process. QHS is an approved partner of Musgrave MarketPlace and can support you with professional advice and training.

Tailored Plan

Food handlers must be fully trained. QHS, or a similar consultancy, will advise on your proposed kitchen plans and how to register your new food business. They will also develop a tailored food safety & HACCP system for your pub at a specially discounted rate.

The Food Service Authority of Ireland offers a Self Catering Pack, ideal for those who have not developed their own food safety management system yet, but may also be used by businesses to improve existing systems.

Your Musgrave MarketPlace local branch also offers comprehensive Food Safety Training Programmes for both food handlers and food safety managers.

  2. a more comprehensive solution for pubs with developed food businesses and a dedicated food area
