What the business says

The inspection undertaken found that the overall hygiene practices to be compliant, with the structural measures given a 0  (highest rating) score, there were identified concerns that were rectified within 24-48 hours and a rigourous review of third party supplier certification, which lead  to the lower rating on this inspection, as full due diligence as to the dertermination of the sushi products being clasified as RTE was questioned.

This was sought by suppliers and it was identified that two products were not classified as RTE and one was queried and still requires acceptance by the local government authority based on written evidence.  

All products that were belived to be RTE are now frozen and were attended to as per advice by the EHP within the requested time frame.

Zuma Management had believed that all products were considered RTE as they are supplied across London for the same  if not similar useage, yet this does not change the need to undertake greater due diligence checks of third party suppliers.
