Food hygiene rating scheme

All food businesses in Birmingham are regularly visited by our team of environmental health officers to review and rate their hygiene standards. After each inspection the food business will receive one of the following ratings:

  • 5 (very good)
  • 4 (good)
  • 3 (generally satisfactory)
  • 2 (improvement necessary)
  • 1 (major improvement necessary)
  • 0 (urgent improvement necessary)
