Food Hygiene Rating Scheme

Each year we'll come out and inspect your business, after our visit we'll issue a food hygiene rating from 0 to 5. Find out more about food law and inspections.

You'll then be given a green sticker to place in your window to let customers know how you've been rated. The Food Standard agency has some helpful advice on how to promote good hygiene.

Food Hygiene Rating Scheme

The Food Hygiene Rating Scheme is a Food Standards Agency/local authority partnership initiative designed to help consumers choose where to eat out or shop for food. It does this byinforming them about the hygiene standards in food outlets at the time they are inspected to check compliance with legal requirements.

When you eat out or shop for food, you might see a sticker in the window or on the door showing you the hygiene rating for that business. Every premises which falls within the scheme is given a sticker and encouraged to display it in a clearly visible place. These stickers also show the date the hygiene standards were assessed by the local authority's food safety officer. If you don't see the rating at a takeaway or other food business, you can ask a member of staff if the business is in the scheme and what rating was given at the last inspection.
