Food Hygiene in the Catering Industry

Catering Insurance

Food hygiene: Why is a good rating so important?

The reputation of an eatery is everything to its customers. Plenty of potential diners give a restaurant or takeaway a quick internet search before deciding whether to go there or not. If the place in question has a below average food hygiene rating, this can be a huge turn off and mean customers are lost to competition. Food hygiene is therefore something that cannot be ignored. The customer will know, and this could mean you suffer from a loss of business.

No restaurant wants to be on the receiving end of a bad rating, or a claim that something untoward has been found in a meal or at the premises. Keeping on top of cleanliness and a good standard of food is something many restaurant owners make a priority. With this set as a main concern, they can limit the damage to their business and keep consumers’ confidence. Once faith is lost in an establishment, it is very difficult to get it back.

The Food Standards Agency is a body that inspects and rates food establishments on the hygiene. Complying with their regulations means that you should, in theory, not have to worry about receiving a negative rating. It could be suggested that many consumers would put the cleanliness of an eatery over the service, as many people believe there is a zero tolerance for poor food hygiene. According to the Food Standards Agency, the food hygiene rating or inspection result given to a business reflects the standards of food hygiene found on the date of inspection or visit by the local authority. The food hygiene rating is not a guide to food quality.

Making sure your eatery is clean is seen as being extremely important. To achieve a good rating, owners must prove there is a managed approach to pest control, well-maintained food storage systems, prevention of cross contamination in food preparation, personal hygiene and staff training and record keeping.

It is crucial not to get caught out, as this will result in your eatery insurance going up in price.
