THE latest round of hygiene ratings show relatively positive results for the Wigan and Leigh area, with no zero scores handed out.
However, of the 43 eateries inspected up until the end of November, almost one quarter failed to record at least a satisfactory mark.
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 have been ongoing throughout the year and the ratings are aimed to reassure customers of the venue they are purchasing food products from.
One thing that establishments are marked on is food hygiene and safety, which looks at factors such as food handling practices and procedures and temperature control.
Another thing looked at is structural compliance, which refers to things 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.
One outlet which has seen significant improvement is Beestons Bakery, which has seen its previous zero score changed to a three after another inspection.
