If you serve or supply food direct to the public, you may be covered by the Food Hygiene Rating Scheme. This means that when your business is inspected, you will be given a hygiene rating from '0' at the bottom to '5' at the top, based on the hygiene standards found at the time. Further information on the food hygiene rating scheme can be found in the documents section of this page.
You will be given a sticker/certificate with your rating. You can put these on display to show your customers how good your hygiene standards are.
