FSA launches toolkit to help friers promote ratings



The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has today launched an online toolkit to help fish and chip shops get the most out of their hygiene rating.


The ‘How to’ guide offers a host of ideas to help promote hygiene standards and increase the number of customers who come through the door or order online. For example it recommends friers include the food hygiene rating (applicable in England, Wales and Northern Ireland) or Pass (if in Scotland) on menus and advertising.

Catriona Stewart, head of the FSA’s food hygiene ratings team, said: “Businesses displaying their ratings are finding this is having a positive impact. People are increasingly looking for the stickers when they are out and we want more businesses to benefit in this way, and our new toolkit can help them make the most of their ratings.

“The scheme also gives customers the confidence that they are choosing to eat at premises where food hygiene is being taken seriously.”
