What Precautions are we taking?

Inspired Chocolate are taking the Corona Virus extremely seriously and while we trust in our extensive existing food hygiene management, we have introduced the following additional safety measures:

  • The offering of sample chocolates upon arrival, unfortunately, is suspended for the time being to avoid the risk of contamination.
  • All doors and handles are being wiped down with antibacterial spray throughout the day together with surfaces and equipment. The card machine is sanitised after each use. The Team will wash their hands after handling cash.
  • The Team are washing their hands frequently throughout the day and before tasks.
  • Cough and Sneeze stations have been set up providing tissues, a bin and hand wash enabling the government advice of "Catch it, Bin it, Kill it".
  • Bins have been removed from the toilets and placed in the corridor as we ask everyone to use blue roll to dry their hands, switch off the taps and unlock/open the toilet doors then disposing of it as they leave the toilet corridor.
  • We respectfully ask that:
    • Anyone with a new cough, temperature, aches, feeling generally unwell or have been in close proximity to anyone with such symptoms, or recently travelled overseas, please do not enter.
    • All Customers are required to sanitise their hands before entering using the dispenser in the entrance lobby.
    • Our Team are practising Social Distancing, please respect this and do the same while on site.
    • Where possible, please pay by card rather than cash.
    • Go outside or use our cough and sneeze stations if you need to cough or sneeze, then afterwards, please fully wash your hands.

Inspired Chocolate reserve the right to ask any customer or visitor to leave if in our sole opinion there may be a risk and the above shall be rigorously enforced for everyone's safety.

Thank you for your cooperation and hope you can see the benefits and rationale for us introducing these measures.
