Green Dragon Environmental Scheme

Green Dragon is a five-stage environmental management system relevant to the specific needs of businesses. Participating organisations gain recognition for effective environmental management without necessarily adopting a formal management system.

Additional information on this classification scheme is available here.

Food Standards Hygiene (Very Good)

The Food Standards Agency works closely with Local Authorities enforcement officers to ensure that food and feed law is applied across the entire food chain. After a thorough inspection from the local enforcement officers, businesses offering and/or dealing with food are awarded a rating ranging from 1 to 5, 5 being the highest standard. Gravesham will only promote 4 and 5 rated businesses on their tourism website so visitors can be reassured that hygiene standards are met.
