The Bali Tourism Authority (BTA) has launched a "Healthy Restaurant Campaign" in order to upgrade the hygiene and health standards of local restaurants and provide assurances to tourists visiting the island.
The voluntary system of screening will see dining establishments undergo inspections every three months of their ice and water supply; and food, equipment and staff health reviews every six months.
According to Dr. I Gde Pitana, the Chief of the BTA, of the 370 restaurants formally registered in Bali, 92 have already joined the certification program. Dr. Pitana also pointed out that restaurants in all star-rated hotels already hold health and hygiene certifications.
Those restaurants having passed the health certification process will have their names published in a directory published by the BTA and at the BTA's Website.
