Wrexham Council is urging people booking their Christmas meals to check the food hygiene ratings of local establishments before booking.

Good food hygiene has become easier to spot with the recent introduction of the National Food Hygiene Rating Scheme.

The system rates restaurants, pubs, hotels, cafes, takeaways and other food establishments from 0 to 5 on their hygiene standards when a food hygiene inspection is carried out by Wrexham Council.

The ratings can be found online at: http://ratings.food.gov.uk/

Christmas party goers can also look out for the distinctive green and black stickers that businesses are encouraged to display at their outlets to tell their customers the rating they were given.

Cllr David Bithell, Lead Member for the Environment and Transport, said:

“When dining out, you’ll choose to go to a place where you like the food and you know you’ll have a good time. It makes sense to look before you book and check out the food hygiene rating as well.”

Steve Wearne, Director of the FSA in Wales added:

“The FHRS is all about putting the consumer first, supplying people with useful information on which to base their choice of where to eat.

“The FSA is working in partnership with Wrexham Council and other local authorities to introduce this scheme nationally. It means that when you eat out, be it in the area you live or further away, you can easily compare hygiene standards of different food outlets.”
