London 2012 – Safer food
A scheme successfully delivered by the Association of London Environmental Health Managers that raised standards in previously non-compliant food businesses in host boroughs prior to the London 2012 Olympics.
The scheme is a clear example of how ALEHM is helping to protect the health and wellbeing of Londoners.

What we did
The Association of London Environmental Health Managers helped to deliver its partner’s objectives by coordinating delivery of the Food Standards Agency’s Safer Food Better Business programme within the London 2012 host boroughs in the run up to the games.
This was a two-year project, worth £130,00 in its first year, project managed by ALEHM, is a successful example of how ALEHM is able to deliver other organisation’s objectives where coordinated pan-London deliver is required.
