Five Years Of The Food Hygiene Rating Scheme

Local News

The Food Standards Agency is celebrating the success of the Food Hygiene Rating Scheme which was launched five years ago, releasing information that breaks down its food hygiene ratings to coincide with this milestone.
The Food Standards Agency published figures show 83.7% of outlets owned by the biggest high street food chains were given the best food hygiene rating of five. The FSA found that of the largest twenty food chains, JD Wetherspoon and Pret A Manger had the highest proportion of 5s (93.1%).
To mark five years of the scheme, the FSA has also released data for Leeds which shows that over half of all food businesses in the city with a rating achieve the top rating of 5:
Catriona Stewart, who heads up the FSA’s Food Hygiene Ratings Scheme said:
“Telling people about hygiene standards in food outlets in a way that is clear and easy to understand has made a real difference. We’ve seen standards improve and more and more businesses are able to show their customers that they take food hygiene seriously. It’s really easy to check the hygiene rating of a food business just go to the Food Standards Agency website at”
You can also look for the green and black sticker on display and if you can’t see one – just ask the staff.
Alistair Broome, general manager for JD Wetherspoon pubs in Leeds, said:
“We are delighted with the results from the FSA.
“Food hygiene is of paramount importance to our customers and the results highlight the commitment of our pub staff to ensuring excellent food hygiene at all times.”
