How are food outlets judged on hygiene?
Businesses that serve food are judged on three criteria:
How hygienically the food is handled – how it is prepared, cooked, re-heated, cooled and stored
The condition of the structure of the buildings – the cleanliness, layout, lighting, ventilation and other facilities
How the business manages and records what it does to make sure food is safe
