Teal portable sinks help attain a good food hygiene rating

Mobile caterers need portable hand washing facilities

A survey of nearly 2,000 people in England Wales and Northern Ireland has revealed that potential food outlet customers pay a great deal of attention to food hygiene ratings – and that they’re instrumental in their purchasing decision-making, according to a recent report on the Catering Insight website.

The headline element in the article by Patrick Cremona is that 58% wouldn’t purchase from an outlet with less than a four star hygiene rating.

The research was carried out by Navitas Group: Bob Mackay is an environmental health practitioner with the Group and he is quoted as saying that “… raising and maintaining food hygiene standards should be a key focus for any food business.” 

“…food outlets should be aiming higher if they want to attract and retain customers and should ideally be aiming to beat or match the competition by targeting a 5-star rating.”
