Food Hygiene Rating (Wales) Bill
What is the purpose of the Bill?
The Food Hygiene Rating (Wales) Bill will make it compulsory for food businesses in Wales to display information on their hygiene standards (their food hygiene rating) in a position where it can easily be seen by customers.
The voluntary scheme was introduced in October 2010. It provides food businesses with a rating from between 0 (urgent improvement necessary) to 5 (very good) based on their compliance with food law requirements. The Bill will require food businesses to display their food hygiene rating and local authorities to enforce the mandatory scheme in their area and ensure ratings are correctly displayed.
What are the benefits of the Bill?
Display of food hygiene ratings will give customers easily understandable information so they can make more informed choices about where to eat or shop for food. It is also likely to encourage food businesses to improve their food hygiene standards.
How do I find out more information?
Details on the progress of the Bill are on National Assembly for Wales website.
