‘Golden Sandok’ to be given to cleanest food establishment
by Ofelia C. Empian

With Baguio’s drive to maintain cleanliness, food establishments in the city are all the more encouraged to keep their areas tidy through a competition.

Dubbed as the “Golden Sandok,” the competition involves food establishments in the city that have the best practices in cleanliness.

Engr. Charles Bryan Carame of the City Health Services Office said the competition will be a three-year program that aims to monitor the compliance of every food establishment in the city with sanitation laws.

“This is to encourage establishments that have good practices on sanitation and serve as a challenge sa mga hindi pumasa at hindi nag-qualify to become better,” Carame said.

He said they will look into the overall sanitation of the establishments in the 16 health districts.

For the first two years of the competition, CHSO will award first, second, and third placers in each health district.

For the third year, Carame said CHSO will award the best of the best. 

Earlier, Mayor Benjamin Magalong led the inspection of eateries at Burnham Park and along Marcos Highway, where he asked the stall owners to properly impose sanitation practices in food handling such as wearing of uniforms and protective sanitation gears, and not to let their stalls encroach the road.

The mayor also warned the owners to stop using charcoal when grilling because this causes air pollution.

He advised them to use alternative means to grill, those  that will not adversely affect the city’s air quality.

He gave them three months for the transition.

Carame said the inventory of compliant establishments is ongoing.

“A lot of them are compliant in the first round of monitoring, but most of them do not maintain it,” he said, adding that with the competition, they aim to encourage the establishments to be more compliant.
