Hygiene ratings

Out of the 152 food venues inspected across the borough in April, 84 scored five or “very good,” a percentage of 55.

Almost a quarter of the surprise visits from health inspectors resulted in the second-highest rank of four (good), at 23 per cent.

At the far end of the scale, two eateries in the borough were found to be requiring urgent improvement. Leigh Tandoori and X-tra Local Convenience Store both received a score of zero.

There were also 11 locations which scored one, meaning major improvement is necessary. One of which was Acorns Day Centre in Hindley. Bosses pleaded guilty to five food hygiene offences at court earlier this month.

The offences included failure to ensure food was protected against contamination, failure to ensure adequate procedures were in place to control pests and failure to ensure food handlers were supervised, instructed and/or trained in food hygiene matters. The centre was fined £100,000 for the offences.

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 June 2018.
