Why improve your Hygiene Rating?

A National Food Hygiene Rating Scheme (FHRS) has been adopted by all of the Local Authorities in Wales and nearly all in England. At present food businesses can choose to display their FHRS rating, those with level 5 do so others with lower ratings may not.

Be proud to display your score before the law forces you to - anyone can see your rating on line now. Soon the law is going to change and you will have to display your FHRS rating. The Food Standards Agency (FSA) is doing all that it can to encourage improvement in low performing food outlets.

Jeff Rooker the Chair of the FSA said recently, "Telling consumers about hygiene standards in food outlets gives them greater choice and the power to vote with their feet – they are able to choose to eat at the places with the highest standards and avoid those that don’t meet the grade".
