How the Food Hygiene Rating Scheme works

Food Standards Agency

Developed by the Food Standards Agency (FSA) in partnership with local authorities, the national Food Hygiene Rating Scheme (FHRS) makes information on food hygiene standards publicly available. The scheme is designed to help you choose where to eat or shop for food by telling you how seriously a food business takes their food hygiene standards.

Food Hygiene Rating Scheme sticker

Food businesses are inspected by our food hygiene inspectors to check that their hygiene levels meet legal requirements. Hygiene standards are rated on a scale from 0 (urgent improvement is required) to 5 (very good).

This information is then published on the Food Standards Agency website and on ratings stickers which food businesses can choose to display at their premises.

Food rating 0 - Urgent improvement necessary Food rating 1 - Major improvement necessary Food rating 2 - Improvement necessary Food rating 3 - Generally satisfactory Food rating 4 - Good Food rating 5 - Very good

How we rate a food business' hygiene

The rating we give a business reflects the standards of food hygiene found at the time of inspection. This includes:

  • Food hygiene and safety: how food is stored, handled and prepared to avoid cross-contamination and control temperatures etc.
  • Physical condition of the business: considering cleanliness, layout, lighting, ventilation and pest control etc.
  • Confidence in management: the management's attitude towards hygiene and safety (procedures, training, demonstration of hygiene and food safety technical knowledge) as well as the business's track record

The rating scheme does not reflect the quality of the food being prepared or the dining experience.
