Right To Reply
Notes For Businesses
A food business operator has the 'right to reply' to the food hygiene rating they are given.
This gives you the chance to explain any action you have taken to improve the premises. Improvements you need to make will be detailed on your Report of Visit form.
This also gives you an opportunity to explain any circumstances around the initial inspection. Please note that this form is not designed for making complaints, or for criticising the scheme or the food safety officer.
Please complete the form below if you'd like to use your 'right to reply'.
Your comments will be reviewed by the food safety officer. Any offensive or defamatory comments will be edited out before publication. Comments and your food hygiene rating will be published on the Food Standards Agency website.
A supporting statement will state that the accuracy of your comments have not been verified by local authority officers.
