South Kesteven District Council and the Food Standards Agency are urging those planning a romantic Valentine’s meal to always check the Food Hygiene Rating for a date to remember for the right reasons.
FHRS – Look before you book this Valentine’s Day
The last thing you want to think about before an important dinner date is whether or not the place you choose takes food hygiene seriously.
The Food Hygiene Rating Scheme means you don’t have to.
So look before you book this Valentine’s Day and check the food hygiene rating before deciding where to go on your special date.
It’s really simple to check. Just go online to the Food Standard Agency’s website at www.food.gov.uk/ratings or if you’re out and about look for the green and black sticker. If you can’t see one just ask the staff.
The ratings are determined by SKDC’s Food Safety Officers and range from 0 to 5, with a 5 rating meaning very good food hygiene standards.
Over 90% of food businesses are rated a 3 or higher so there are plenty of places with good food hygiene standards you can choose from.
This means you can easily avoid taking your special date to those places not meeting the grade. So enjoy Valentine’s Day and remember to look before you book.
