Bexley has highest hygiene failure rate for catering businesses
‘Bexley is the local authority area with the highest failure rate among catering businesses for food hygiene in England, while Craven district council, North Yorkshire, has the lowest failure rate.
That’s one of the findings from new research by reputation management firm KwikChex, which has analysed the scores received by restaurants, hotels, pubs, shops and other caterers across the country, under the Food Standards Agency’s (FSA) Food Hygiene Rating Scheme.’
‘Chris Emmins, co-founder of KwikChex, said his company’s research had come about following a significant increase in businesses asking for help concerning anonymous online allegations of food poisoning. He said the research suggested few consumers were aware of expert resources that help them check food hygiene standards, and identify and report food poisoning cases.’
“We’re trying to make sure that false allegations come off review sites. But while we are protecting maligned businesses, we are also doing everything we can to let the public know that there are various processes available. You can report problems to the FSA before you go and falsely accuse a business online, and before you even go out for a meal you can check the score.”
