Environmental health practitioners carry out regular inspections at food premises to ensure that standards of hygiene and food safety are being maintained and that there is no risk to public safety.

We undertake food inspections to:

  • establish whether food is being handled and produced hygienically
  • establish whether food is safe to eat
  • identify foreseeable incidences of food poisoning or injury as a consequence of consumption of food
  • ensure that appropriate allergen controls are in place and allergen information is available
  • ensure that food labelling, compositions and authenticity requirements are met

Food hygiene ratings scheme

After every routine inspection, the premises is given a new risk rating and a food hygiene rating is published on the website.

Premises with a lower rating will be visited more frequently and may be subject to enforcement action in accordance with our enforcement policy.
