Great Britain’s Rating Scheme For Food-Handling Establishments Set To Launch In Fall

August 19, 2010: 08:09 PM EST
The U.K.s’ Food Standards Agency has written to local officials around the country to inform them of local availability of a food rating scheme designed to help consumers choose where to dine or buy food by providing information about hygiene standards in various food-handling establishments. Local launches of the national Food Hygiene Rating Scheme (FHRS) with a newly designed branding scheme will begin in the fall, giving consumers a simple numeric scale that rates restaurants, pubs, cafes, take out shops, hotels, supermarkets, and other places they eat out and buy food. The agency also said that an electronic system with an online consumer search facility and a local authority hygiene data upload system is being tested now.
