Silver Platter Awards

The Silver Platter Award program has been in place since 2008. Whatcom County food establishments with excellent inspection results (low violation point scores) present a reduced risk of illness to their customers. To qualify for a Silver Platter award, a food establishment operator must demonstrate active managerial control of illness risks by achieving consistent compliance during routine inspections. A food establishment must score zero red high risk factor violation points and 10 or fewer blue violation points on all routine inspections in a calendar year.
