The Food Hygiene Rating Scheme

We Can Help You Raise Your Score

Now more than ever customers have a vast amount of information at their finger tips. Within minutes a customer can find out how your business performs in comparison to your competitors in regard to the safety of your produce.

When food safety officers undertake food hygiene inspections of premises, they give them scores. The ‘Food Hygiene Rating Scheme’ converts these scores into simple ratings and makes these available to the public.

It is designed to;

• be clear and easy to understand by consumers
• give businesses recognition and an incentive to improve hygiene standards
• be fair to businesses
• be simple and practical to operate by local authorities.

Many types of businesses are given a rating including;

Restaurants, takeaways, cafés, sandwich shops, pubs, hotels, supermarkets and other retail food outlets, and any other business where consumers can eat or buy food

At inspection, scores are given for three areas

1. Hygiene, how hygienically the food is handled
2. Structure, the condition of the structure of the premises
3. Management, how the business manages and records what it does to make sure food is safe.

The scores are then converted to a food hygiene rating.

Having a Pest Control solution in place and as a result no pests, plays a big part of forming a Food Safety Officers view on your premises. This, cleansing, your records, and the training of your staff contributes to all of these areas. As a result of Local Authority cuts Food Safety Officers are not able to afford the time it can take to guide and lead you through the rules and regulations and are often forced to take legal action at the earliest opportunity.

Our experience in working for businesses in this area from all levels, in partnership with Food Safety Officers means that we are ideally placed to give you advice as to what steps you need to take to improve your score.

We are proud to share that our current client base of 30 food businesses have an average score of 4.7 out of 5.
