We had our Food Hygiene Inspection last week. As usual the visit is unannounced and shows what a high standard we uphold at Humpty Dumpty and how wonderful our Nursery Cook, Debbie, is with our Newton Abbot setting achieving 5 star rating again.
We would like to say a massive well done to Debbie, we are so lucky to have you as part of our team – you are a wonderful cook, incredibly organised and keep us all on top of our game. Thank you
The Food Hygiene Rating Scheme (FHRS) helps you choose where to eat out or shop for food by telling you how seriously the business takes their food hygiene standards.
The scheme is run by local authorities in England, Northern Ireland and Wales and applies to restaurants, pubs, cafes, takeaways, hotels, day nurseries, supermarkets and other food shops.
Each business is given their hygiene rating when it is inspected by a food safety officer from the business’s local authority. The food safety officer inspecting the business checks how well the business is meeting the law by looking at:
• 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
• how the business manages and records what it does to make sure food is safe
At the end of the inspection, the business is given one of the six ratings from 0-5. The top rating of ‘5’ means that the business was found to have ‘very good’ hygiene standards. Any business should be able to reach this top rating.
