Food Hygiene Rating Scheme (FHRS)


Following the latest government and Food Standards Agency advice on social distancing, our food safety officers are not currently conducting routine food hygiene or re-rating inspections in the usual way, to safeguard the businesses and our staff.  Our inspections are now resuming but we are working to support businesses by collecting as much information from them as we can from a distance, so that our announced verification visits are quicker and we can spend time supporting on COVID controls as well as hygiene.

Before you start  or resume trading as a food business,  please check for up to date advice on the current situation, using our business support page.  GOV.UK have produced some guidance ' GOV.UK: Coronavirus (COVID‑19)' and 'Keeping workers and customers safe during COVID-19 in restaurants, pubs, bars and takeaway services'.

If you are planning to cook food for your community or to donate food, whether as an existing business or as a community food group- please follow the current Food Standards Agency advice.
