There were 106 enforcement orders served on food businesses for safety breaches last year, compared with 113 in 2014.

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) welcomed the 6 per cent drop but warned owners that it is their responsibility to ensure premises are up to scratch.

Between January 1 and December 31 2015, officers served 90 closure orders and 16 prohibition orders on food businesses throughout the country.
