Mr Cinalp was also issued with a prohibition order which means that he cannot manage a food takeaway or retail business in the future.

The six offences he admitted included failing to maintain fixtures, fittings and equipment in a clean condition, failure to keep high risk foods under effective temperature control  and exposing food to a risk of contamination.

As well as this, Bodrum A S was found failing to implement an effective procedure to manage food safety, and failing to comply with a hygiene improvement notice following the Environmental Health Officer’s inspection.
