If you're going out for a bite to eat, you can be assured eateries have earned their licences from Wairarapa councils.
Statistics obtained by the Times-Age under the Official Information Act shows no Wairarapa eateries have had any hygienic issues in the year ending July, 2012.
Carterton District Council had 52 licensed premises registered but this included hair dressers, liquor stores, traders and mobile shops such as caterers.
Of these, eight had minor breaches including water not being hot enough and a bench being too cluttered.
Environmental health officer Vanessa Vermeulen said none of the breaches was of major concern and all were quickly fixed.
"Because we're such a small place you get to know the retailers quite well ... they know the rules," she said.
None of the 21 food premises registered under the Food Act had outstanding legal breaches.
