Tower Hamlets is a fascinating borough, a multi-cultural community steeped in history.  The contrasts and challenges in food safety range from the dozens of restaurants in the 'Curry Capital' of Brick Lane to the small start-up businesses selling street-food to the high-tech, corporate world-wide financial institutions in Canary Wharf, employing thousands of people using the services that Environmental Health & Trading Standards is responsible for.
