Food hygiene rating
The food hygiene rating Act 2013 introduces a mandatory scheme requiring food businesses to openly display their hygiene rating and advise customers of their hygiene rating on request.
The scheme is run by Gwynedd Council and applies to
- supermarkets and other food shops
Each business is given their hygiene rating when it is inspected by a food safety officer from Gwynedd Council. More information can be found on the The Food Standards Agency’s website (FSA).
How does it work?
During a food hygiene inspection an assessment is made against the hygiene risk which the business poses to the health of the public.The rating will be based on
- How hygienically the food is handled
- The condition of the premises
- How food safety is managed
The level of compliance determines the Food Hygiene Rating of a business, which ranges from the lowest rating ‘0’ – Urgent Improvement Necessary to the highest rating ‘5’ Very Good.
