Hygiene ratings - latest results
The latest round of food hygiene inspections has taken place across the borough, and the results are in.
There were 96 surprise visits by health inspectors to Wigan’s food-serving businesses, with 44 of them being given the highest possible mark of Five, or “Very Good”, which marked 45 per cent of the overall count.
Just over a fifth of the inspections resulted in eateries awarded a “Good” mark of Four - with 21 outlets receiving this score (21.8 per cent).
Just one venue scored the lowest grade of Zero. Lily Lion in Shevington requires “urgent improvement” after the dismal mark. In May, the Chinese takeaway was forced to close its doors by the council, after it was founded to be infested with mice.
Businesses that serve food are rated on how hygienically it is handled; how it is prepared, cooked, reheated, cooled and stored; the condition of the structure of the buildings; the cleanliness, lay-out, 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 judged 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.
Credit is also given for confidence in management, which is graded on the performance of those in charge of the establishment 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.
All ratings were correct on the Food Standards Agency website as of July 2018.
