Improving Your Food Hygiene Rating
Food businesses in the UK falling short of achieving the top food hygiene rating of '5 - very good', are aware that most customers now use ratings when choosing where to eat out or purchase food. Increasing their inspection rating as quickly as possible, as the display of the rating on the premises is likely to become mandatory across the UK, is therefore vital to the success of the business. SFBB Systems has a track record of helping new businesses achieve a FHRS score of '5' at their first inspection and existing businesses consistently maintaining the highest rating.
Our visits can include food safety coaching and advice to help drive up your score, additionally we can assist in 'Right to Reply' and 'Requesting a Re-visit' with inspecting authorities.
