Food Hygiene Rating Scheme: All food businesses in Wales have to display their Food Hygiene Score

food hygiene rating scheme

The Food Hygiene Rating Scheme was launched by the Food Standards Authority (FSA) and has been rolled out to local authorities.

Eventually, all businesses selling food will be allocated a rating based on an inspection by the local authority; this rating can be used by consumers to make an informed choice as to where to eat out or shop for food.

There is a consultation currently underway to take views on how the food hygiene rating scheme in Wales will operate under the Food Hygiene Rating (Wales) Regulations 2013.

The closing date for responses is 21 June 2013.The ratings range from 0 (urgent improvement required) to 5 (very good) and will be awarded to all businesses where people eat out or can buy food, including supermarkets, restaurants/pubs and ice-cream vans.

Once the rating has been notified, the operator must display a sticker showing the score awarded. The score will also appear on the Food Standards Authority website

If you wish to contribute to the consultation go to this link.
