A supermarket in West Kilbride has now received a pass from environmental health chiefs after it fell foul of hygiene regulations.

We previously reported that environmental health checks in November at the Co-op store in on Ritchie Street had found a minor breach in relation to the cleaning of the ceiling.

Environmental health chiefs said the store would have passed in November - except that the ceiling issue hadn't been resolved after being raised at a previous inspection.

A Co-op spokesman said on Wednesday morning: “Co-op sets the highest standards. Improvements were carried out in November last year and the Co-op requested a re-visit.

"There has now been a re-inspection which resulted in a 'Pass' for the store."

Food Standards Scotland is the public sector body for Scotland to protect the health and wellbeing of consumers.

The main purpose of a food law inspection is to ensure food safety.

The inspecting officer seeks to establish whether food is being handled, stored and produced hygienically and is labelled and presented in compliance with all relevant legal requirements.

To help food business operators comply with food law, guidance is provided by Food Standards Scotland.
