Bakery fined £20,000 for food hygiene breaches including rat infestation

A bakery business, based in Willersey with retail outlets in Chipping Campden and Oxfordshire, has been fined nearly £20,000 for failing to comply with food hygiene regulations.

Appearing at Stroud Magistrates Court on 17 August, La Tradition Ltd – trading as La Tradition – pleaded guilty to charges that they had failed to keep the premises clean and in a good state of repair, did not address a serious infestation of rats and mice, and also breached an Emergency Prohibition Order.

In March this year Officers from Cotswold District Council undertook a food hygiene inspection of the business in Willersey.

They noted the infestation of rats and mice along with very poor standards of cleaning and disrepair.
