Food hygiene

Food hygiene rating scheme

The food hygiene rating scheme provides information about the hygiene standards in:
  • restaurants
  • pubs
  • cafes
  • takeaways
  • hotels
  • supermarkets
  • and other places you eat or buy food

The scheme helps you to see who upholds good food hygiene standards. The scheme is run by local authorities in partnership with the Food Standards Agency (FSA). When our food safety officers inspect a business we give it a 'hygiene rating'. The hygiene rating shows how closely the business is meeting the requirements of food hygiene law.

You can find out more on the Food Standard Agencies website where you can search for hygiene ratings in the borough.
