Food hygiene rating

There are around 2,100 food premises in Herefordshire and we check and monitor that the premises and activities occurring within them, comply with food safety legislation. Officers from environmental health carry out food hygiene interventions either six monthly, annually, every 18 months, every two years, or every three years depending upon the risk assessment. You can find more advice from the Food Standards Agency on food hygiene for businesses.

The food hygiene rating or inspection result given to a business reflects the standards of food hygiene we found on the date of inspection or visit. The food hygiene rating is not a guide to food quality. You can find the food hygiene rating for a business on the Food Standards Agency website.
