Latest food hygiene ratings for South Shields and Jarrow businesses released
A number of South Tyneside businesses including restaurants and takeaways have recently been awarded new food hygiene ratings.
South Tyneside Council food safety inspectors have given a number of businesses including restaurants and takeaways a range of food hygiene ratings after recent assessments.
Ratings range from zero to five stars, with zero meaning urgent improvement is required, one star meaning major improvement is necessary, two stars indicating some improvement is necessary, three meaning hygiene standards are generally satisfactory while four means hygiene standards are good and five means standards are very good.
During inspection, officers look at areas such as hygienic food handling, cleanliness and condition of facilities and building and management of food safety.
In order to get a top rating of five, a business must do well in all elements of food hygiene standards and if this is not given the officer will explain the actions needed to improve.
