About this course
The Food Hygiene Rating Scheme is a new scheme introduced by the Food Standards Agency and carried out by Local Authorities. It is designed to inform the public about food businesses’ standards of hygiene in a simple, clear and fair way.
Businesses are encouraged to display their rating to inform the public about the business’s hygiene standards (and are publicly available at: http://ratings.food.gov.uk/ ). Customers will be attracted to businesses with higher ratings more than competitors with lower ratings.
This course is designed to help you to achieve a 5 star rating by outlining the criteria that will be covered and helping to ensure you are compliant with food safety standards. As part of the course, you carry out a ‘self-audit’ that will highlight any areas you need to improve.
Who is this course for?
Food Hygiene Ratings are given to any business that serves food to the public. This includes: restaurants and hotels, takeaways, cafés, sandwich shops, pubs, mobile street traders, supermarkets, bakeries, and delicatessens. Ratings are also given to other places where food is served such as schools, hospitals and residential care homes.
Some businesses may be exempt such as news agencies or other businesses that do not sell food to the public.
