Food Hygiene Rating Scheme (FHRS)

Not happy with your Food Hygiene Rating Scheme (FHRS) score?

We can:

  • Improve your ratings
  • Challenge ratings on your behalf
  • Assist with re-ratings

Most consumers now using the ratings when choosing where to eat out, helping to driving up hygiene standards in food businesses. Display of the rating on the premises is mandatory in Wales and Northern Ireland and will soon become mandatory in England.

NSF has a track record of helping businesses from large chains of restaurants through to single operator sandwich bars to improve their FHRS score. We have a 98 percent success rate in improving FHRS scores with 95 percent of clients scoring 3 or above.

We achieve this though consulting, training, coaching, and policy and systems support.

Nearly half of our current compliance audits already include an FHRS-benchmarked assessment, allowing you to predict your score levels.

Our visits can include coaching and advisory elements which have been proven to raise scores consistently to achieve target standards across large multi-site operations.

We are working closely with the FSA’s 'Regulating Our Future' strategic project plan around the blueprint for third-party food safety audits and sit on their expert industry advisory panel. NSF can help clients that want to benefit from Earned Recognition for their outlets when the new regulation comes into force.
