Hygiene ratings - latest scores

editorial image

A QUARTER of Wigan businesses visited by officials in the latest round food hygiene inspections were awarded ‘unsatisfactory’ scores.

However, encouragingly, one third of the eateries and takeaways were handed the maximum score possible.

Businesses are rated on a scale of zero to five on how hygienically the food 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, layout, 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.

Out of the 94 places assessed, 30 were given a five; 26 were given a four; 14 were given a three; eight were given a two and 15 were given a one.

Just one eatery – Chop Sticks Chinese takeaway on Tunstall Lane – received a zero in the latest round of results, which are from inspections between November 23 and January 15.

Amongst the one businesses that received a two, where major improvement is necessary, was Frankies on Gerard Street in Ashton.

The score was recorded before the takeaway was last week raided by immigration officials who arrested seven Pakistani men aged between 18 and 41. Six had overstayed their visas and the other had entered the UK without permission to do so. They were all detained pending their removal from the UK.
