Argyll and Bute Council’s canteen at Kilmory Castle in Lochgilphead has been awarded Healthy Living Plus status for the first time.
Healthy Living Plus is the highest level of Healthy Living awards available, and rewards catering establishments that demonstrate a greater commitment to supporting healthier eating through their menus; food and drink preparation; marketing and promotional activities; food presentation; and point of sale.
Welcoming the news, Council Leader, Councillor Aileen Morton, said: “The catering team at Kilmory Castle are committed to providing customers with healthy choices that taste great, and they have worked tirelessly to achieve this award.
“The canteen is continuing to go from strength to strength and the food the team serves is to the highest standard. They supply catering to a number of local business and organisations on a daily basis too, as well as catering at private functions - they are gaining a growing customer basis outwith Kilmory.
“The criteria for achieving the Healthy Living Plus award is challenging so I am truly delighted, but not surprised, to hear that they have done it. It is very well deserved. Congratulations to everyone involved.”
