Food hygiene ratings

Nearly half of eateries in Wigan achieved the highest food hygiene rating possible in November.

Of 102 takeaways, schools, cafes and pubs inspected by Wigan Council’s food hygiene teams, 46 (45 per cent) received a rating of five.

In total, 90 establishments (88 per cent) were deemed to be operating at an acceptable standard, rating of three (generally satisfactory) or higher, with 17 establishments rated as three and 27 as four.

Only two places received a two (improvement necessary) while nine received the second lowest rating of one (major improvement required).

Pizzaria Ravello in Ashton-in-Makerfield was the was the only place rated as zero (urgent improvements necessary) following an inspection on November 23.

The takeaway pizzeria has been told to make major improvements to the system and checks in place to ensure that food sold and served is safe to eat and evidence that staff know about food safety.

It was also told to make urgent improvements to the cleanliness and condition of the facilities and building, including having the appropriate lay-out, ventilation, hand washing facilities and pest control to enable good food hygiene.

Improvements are also needed for hygienic handling of food including preparation, cooking, re-heating, cooling and storage.

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.

These ratings are correct according to the FSA website as of January 4.
