All food premises in Redbridge should be forced to display “scores on the doors” ratings to improve hygiene standards the council has said.

It is throwing its weight behind the Local Government Association’s campaign (LGA) which is stating that current EU laws regulating food safety should be kept after Brexit and it has called for the government to use the opportunity to strengthen them and make the display of hygiene ratings mandatory in England.

Councillor Sheila Bain, cabinet member for civic pride, said: “The council’s environmental health teams score food outlets from zero to five based on factors such as kitchen cleanliness, cooking methods and food management.

“We firmly believe that food outlets should have a mandatory obligation to display the rating they have been given, as they are in Scotland and Wales. At the moment, those with low scores are very unlikely to display them, and customers are not aware of the hygiene levels that are being maintained.”
