Suwanchai Wattana, the head of the Department of Health, says that 85% of the restaurants in the Suvarnabhumi Airport passenger terminal are certified by Thailand's Department of Health as serving "Clean Food, Good Taste."
Suwanchai praised the owners of 58 restaurants, which make up 85.29 percent of the restaurants in the terminal, at an award ceremony yesterday.
Any hungry travellers at Suvarnabhumi Airport may rest confident that any restaurant with a "Clean Food, Good Taste" accreditation has attained the highest sanitation standards.
In addition to maintaining exemplary cleanliness, the 58 restaurants provide travellers from across the globe with "Thai food that is clean, safe, and healthy."
Suwanchai commended the restaurants for "propelling Thailand's society and economy."
The director general did not single out the 15% of restaurants that were not "Clean Food, Good Taste" approved.
Officials from the department will expand the experiment to five other Airports of Thailand (AOT) airports: Chiang Rai International Airport, Hat Yai International Airport, Samui International Airport, and Phuket International Airport.
The Department of Health says that restaurants with a high level of quality can get the "Clean Food Good Taste Plus" certification.
Ratchanon Kittiphat, deputy director of Suvarnabhumi Airport's Operations Line 2, said that Suvarnabhumi has always prioritised sanitary food standards.
Ratchanon said that AOT is committed to always improving and raising the bar for restaurants that still have to meet the requirements of the department.
The capital airport of Thailand's operators are ready to accommodate travellers from across the globe and will keep pushing to raise the environmental, health, and safety requirements of all enterprises there.
To improve the experience of the 28.3 million visitors that the TAT anticipates will visit Thailand next year, AOT proposes extensions at Suvarnabhumi Airport and Don Mueang Airport.
