Food Hygiene Rating Scheme

More than 92% of rated restaurants and takeaways in Bedford Borough are rated as satisfactory and above, with 75% of these rated as good or very good, according to a new report.

 

The Council’s Food Service Plan 2013/14 shows that of the 799 food establishments inspected under the Food Hygiene Rating Scheme, 132 are rated ‘satisfactory’ with 3 out of 5, along with 255 rated at least 4 out of 5 (good) and 352 rated as ‘very good’ with full marks of 5 out of 5.

 

The Food Hygiene Rating Scheme was introduced in Bedford Borough in June 2011 and informs local residents about the hygiene standards of food establishments in the borough. It also provides a simple and free tool for local businesses to demonstrate to the public they can eat with confidence.

 

Councillor Sarah-Jayne Holland, Portfolio Holder for Community and Regulatory Services, said: “It is great news for local residents and local businesses that more than 92% of rated restaurants and takeaways in Bedford Borough are rated as satisfactory, good or very good.

 

“The Food Hygiene Rating Scheme was introduced in the borough to empower local residents with the knowledge to choose a restaurant or takeaway in a simple and convenient way.

 

“It also provides a useful tool for the local restaurants and takeaways to demonstrate to potential customers that they can eat there with confidence.

 

“The results of all hygiene inspections are available online. Most restaurants and takeaways will also display their rating on their premises as well. If they don’t display it – you can always ask why.”
