Food & industry news Baking For Foodservice INTRODUCING KARA’S NEW & IMPROVED MUFFIN RANGE BEST AND WORST AREAS FOR RESTAURANT FOOD HYGIENE REVEALED >>A new study has revealed the best and worst council areas for food hygiene ratings at restaurants and cafes in the UK. The Food Standards Agency website holds the data from inspections carried out by each local authority under the Food Hygiene Ratings Scheme. Every business that serves food is awarded with a hygiene rating between 0 (urgent improvement necessary) and 5 (very good). Out of a total of 360 council areas in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, the area with the highest percentage of restaurants and cafes with poor ratings is the London Borough of Newham, with 29.2% rated 0, 1 or 2. The London boroughs actually dominated the list of the worst ranking council districts, with Ealing coming second on 28.2%, Harrow third on 26.2%, and many others with over 15% of their restaurants rated 2 or below. Outside London, Hertsmere, Birmingham and Hyndburn have the highest percentage of eateries which are poorly rated for hygiene. Scotland and the Republic of Ireland have a different rating system to the rest of the UK and are therefore the subject of a separate study.
