Interactive map shows food hygiene ratings in North East Lincolnshire
WHETHER eating out or ordering in, customers want to know how high food hygiene standards are at eateries.
And now you can easily find out, thanks to an interactive map of North East Lincolnshire which can be viewed below.
Using data from the Food Standards Agency, our web team has plotted each venue, eatery, takeaway, restaurant and other food operators, listing the details and, most importantly, its rating.
The agency is a national body which constantly monitors food hygiene standards provided by businesses.
To display a high rating in your premises is a badge of honour, and proprietors strive to achieve this mark of approval.
To help Grimsby Telegraph readers choose where to eat in this area, the map contains the name, address, rating and date of rating for all of the businesses listed by the agency, on behalf of local authorities.
A spokesman from the agency said: "The food hygiene rating or inspection result given to a business reflects the standards of food hygiene found on the date of inspection or visit by the local authority.
"The food hygiene rating is not a guide to food quality.
"Everything we do reflects our vision of 'safer food for the nation'.
"We aim to ensure that food produced or sold in the UK is safe to eat, consumers have the information they need to make informed choices about where and what they eat and that regulation and enforcement is risk-based and focused on improving public health."
Don't forget to keep up-to-date with food hygiene ratings in the Grimsby Telegraph. As reported, North East Lincolnshire Council runs a local Scores On The Doors initiative, similar to the Food Standards Agency scheme, giving ratings to businesses. New additions to this are always published in your Grimsby Telegraph.
