My name is Suzanne Welland, and I own a business called Roly Poly puddings. I am based in Staffordshire. When I first started in October 2014, I knew it was very important to register with the local council, so they are aware that you exist.
Having registered, I was then given a telephone interview with a member of the Environmental Health Department, who was perfectly satisfied with what I was doing. Fast forward to June 2017, and they wanted to come and inspect my operation. They visited on June 30th, and were very happy with what they saw, and gave me a 5 star rating, which is the highest you can achieve. By the way, the lady was delightful, not at all scary and very helpful.
It is difficult to achieve 5 Stars – here are my top tips:
I am delighted I decided to go ahead, and absolutely love making my steamed puddings, If you would like to know more, have a look at my Facebook page. I would love to suppply lots of WIRE members with their Christmas pudding this year!
