The Food Standards Agency, in partnership with local authorities, is introducing the national Food Hygiene Rating Scheme in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and the Food Hygiene Information scheme in Scotland. The schemes help consumers choose where to eat out or shop for food by giving them information about the hygiene standards in restaurants, cafés, takeaways, hotels and food shops.
The schemes also encourage businesses to improve hygiene standards. The overarching aim is to reduce the incidence of foodborne illness.
The Agency is working with local authorities to encourage as many of them as possible to run the national schemes, so that consumers can compare hygiene ratings of food businesses in their local area and further away from home.
How can NSF help you?
The Safer Food Better Business system is a simple-to-follow documented food hygiene system. With SFBB you can have all the information you need to be fully food hygiene compliant after a simple 3 hour coaching session.
Having an SFBB system in place will improve your position with the Local Authority Environmental Health Inspector and should positively influence your FHRS rating.
