Food Hygiene Ratings

What are the requirements of the Statutory Scheme?

All food businesses that receive a food hygiene rating are under a legal duty to display their food hygiene rating, once the appeal period has passed or, if they have made an appeal, after the appeal has been determined.

The location of the sticker/s must be so that they can be easily read by customers. Businesses must display their rating at all entrances which the public may use to enter the premises.

Employees working in food businesses must be aware of the business's rating and must verbally inform a person of the rating if requested.

The food hygiene rating will also appear at the FSA food hygiene ratings website www.food.gov.uk/ratings
