The Food Hygiene Rating Scheme (FHRS) will help you choose where to eat out or shop for food by giving you information about the hygiene standards in restaurants, pubs, cafes, takeaways, hotels, and other places you eat out. Supermarkets and other food shops are also included in the scheme.
The scheme is run by the Council in partnership with the Food Standards Agency.
Each business is given a ‘hygiene rating’ when it is inspected by our food safety officers. The hygiene rating shows how closely the business is meeting the requirements of food hygiene law.
It is extremely important for businesses operating in Telford and Wrekin to display the correct Food Hygiene Rating. The Consumer Protection Regulations 2008 specifically ban a trader from claiming that they have been approved, endorsed or authorised by a public body when they do not comply with the terms of the approval, endorsement or authorisation. Businesses should be mindful that a breach of the above regulations could result in prosecution.
