Best Bar None extends to off-trade

02 March, 2009

The Best Bar None award scheme is to expand to include the off-trade.

A steering committee including representatives from the off-trade will be set up in the coming months, with a view to working out how the scheme can be implemented.

BBN chairman Lord Redesdale said: "It is a logical step forward for Best Bar None to include the off-trade. They operate under the same Licensing Act as the on-trade and often encounter the same problems of alcohol-related disorder.

"We will be discussing how this can be implemented with a strong steering committee with knowledge and understanding of both how Best Bar None works at present and how it can successfully encompass the off-trade. I believe this is a positive step forward for both BBN and the night-time economy."

Best Bar None awards businesses for responsible management and operation of licensed premises, and promotes responsible retailing initiatives.
