Govt to grade restaurants
Sharif also gave the green light to the government’s decision of grading restaurants according to their quality.
Establishments would be graded on standard of food, security, cleanliness and quality of water among other yardsticks. It would be mandatory for restaurant managers to prominently display the sticker of their eatery’s grade at the main entrance of the establishments. The initiative would help people select restaurants on the basis of quality of food and facilities.
