The move is aimed at protect- ing consumers from food-borne illnesses, which cost the state $150 million a year in terms of lost productivity and place a huge burden on health services. Primary Industries Minister Ian Macdonald said 36 per cent of people who suffered from food-related illnesses had con- sumed items bought from res- taurants and takeaways. ''Each business will be re- quired to pay for this short-term course program,'' Mr Macdonald said. ''You'd be look- ing at between $150 and $200. ''In terms of giving confidence to customers across the state, that would be immeasurable.'' He said the tough new rules, which will come into effect from early 2010, would see a dedi- cated supervisor in every eatery overseeing food hygiene, storage, preparation and hand- ling. ''Having a well trained and accredited food safety super- visor in each kitchen will give a huge boost to consumer confi- dence, which in turn can only benefit the food businesses themselves,'' Mr Macdonald said. ''These changes are about en- suring the public has total confi- dence in the food they are being served while also protecting the reputation of our important hos- pitality industry.'' Clubs NSW, Australian Ho- tels Association and Res- taurants and Caterers NSW have all backed the plan.

In a similar case in Concord, a man handed over more than $7000. Again no repairs were ever carried out. Constable Lorenc said the scam artists were very convincing and he warned pensioners to be on the alert. ''They are well spoken, very clean shaven and very confident in what they do,'' he said. ''They have an answer for everything. ''They are very hard to catch because (some) are here on tourist visas and don't leave a trail. If they do leave a trail, it is all fake.''
