Publicans criticise ‘crazy’ 28-day customer record rule

Publicans have condemned a new law that requires restaurants and pubs serving food to record all customer’s individual food orders and to keep the information for 28 days.

The Vintners Federations of Ireland (VFI) stated that this temporary rule is “bureaucracy gone mad”.

Padraig Cribben, CEO of VFI stated that “Not only is it too impractical for our members to implement, but why does the Government think this law will help in the fight against Covid? It’s madness”.

Mr Cribben added that this rule will add a huge burden to already struggling businesses.

The new rule is being condemned by many, including incoming chair of the Dublin-based Licensed Vintners’ Association ‘Noel Anderson’
