Most, but not all, food businesses get a food hygiene rating.
Ratings are allocated by inspectors following their inspection of the business.
Ratings range from 0 to 5, with 5 being the best.
- 5 = very good
- 4 = good
- 3 = generally satisfactory
- 2 = improvement necessary
- 1 = major improvement necessary
- 0 = urgent improvement necessary
Once we've inspected your premises, we'll give you a sticker stating your food hygiene rating.
You should display this where customers can see it before they come in to your premises, ideally in a window.
Your rating will also appear on the FSA website.
