Comments Off on [Brexit Updates] Food Hygiene Ratings made compulsory for all Restaurants

No one knows the quality of the food that they consume from outside, do you know?

But who cares about it, because hey I have paid for it and it tastes yum too. So, why not?

This could probably be the answer that you may give to me. Trust me, the day you will come to know about the nutritional benefits you may just faint.

Food Hygiene Ratings made compulsory for all Restaurants

All this started off when the Brexit was announced by the UK.

What is Brexit? You can divide it into two words Britain and Exit. In a referandum that was undertaken in the UK on 23rd June 2016 – almost 70% of the people voted with leaving the EU union; that is the European Union. This is when the UK government gave in and agreed to separate all the works and connections from EU.

Later on March 29, 2017, the UK invoked one of the European Treaty Act which mentions a legal process where any member of the union can cease to be the member of the union. According to this act, the next withdrawal date is March 29, 2019, and the UK is set to leave the EU on the same day, at 11 pm.

This will bring a lot of changes, including the Food Safety department too. For the importance of food hygiene, more strict laws are going to be implemented under the UK law.

Food Hygiene

Health teams will be designated who will rate the hotel or the restaurant from zero to five, on the basis of cleanliness, management of the food, and the cooking way adopted.

This way, customers who are visiting the food outlet could check the ratings and make a perception of the place. If the rating is low like 0, 1 or 2 then you should probably skip on eating from that place.

In this way, the consumer could get to consume only healthy foods and this will also force the hotel owners to work on increasing their food standards. All in all, it will be of great benefit.

With the help of this Hygiene Rating, you could differentiate between the reality and the appearance of the hotel. Cheers!
