Hygiene ratings - Is your favourite eatery on our latest list?

Care homes, tea rooms and schools are among the 44 eateries in the Wigan borough to have been praised for their levels of hygiene.

Ratings show that the 44 out of 125 premises inspected by Wigan Council in July and August, were given a five rating - meaning their levels of hygiene are considered to be very good.

In total, 76.8 per cent of the 125 were deemed to be performing at the correct standard, with 96 receiving a rating of three (generally satisfactory) or higher, according to the Food Standards Agency (FSA) website.

However, 28 eateries in the borough, including a nursery, takeaways and newsagents failed to meet the required standard, gaining a ratin g of two (improvement necessary) or one (major improvement required).

An Indian takeaway, Agra Spice in Ashton, was the only place to receive a rating of zero (urgent improvements necessary) in its inspection in July.

Mark Tilley, Wigan Council’s assistant director of infrastructure and regulatory services, said: ”We have over 2000 businesses published on the National Food Hygiene Rating Scheme and current ratings confirm that over 60 per cent of the borough’s food businesses are rated good or very good with only 0.1 per cent rated as 0.

“Agra Spice in Ashton rated a 0 following an assessment In July which required the food outlet to make urgent improvements. A follow up meeting at the premises has been carried out in the last couple of weeks and we continue to work with the business to ensure that further food hygiene improvements are implemented.

“Residents can also look before they book by visiting http://ratings.food.gov.uk/AdvancedSearch.aspx where they can see the ratings awarded to each business.”

Businesses that serve food are rated on a scale of zero to five on how hygienically it 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 as well as how the business manages and records what it does to make sure food is safe.

The information provided on businesses is held on behalf of local authorities participating in the national Food Hygiene Rating Scheme in England, Northern Ireland and Wales or the Food Hygiene Information Scheme in Scotland.

The inspections continue throughout the year, with rating designed to provide reassurance to customers.

Establishments are also marked on food-handling practices and procedures and temperature control, as well as its structural compliance, such as cleanliness, lay-out, condition of structure, lighting, ventilation and facilities.

Businesses are also marked on confidence in management, which is graded on the performance of those in charge and issues such as how well guidelines are understood by the workforce as well as things such as the track record of the company and complaint history.
