Achieving a 5-star rating is no small feat. It requires meticulous attention to detail and a steadfast dedication to the principles of food safety. Here’s a closer look at the rigorous standards we meet and the hard work that goes into maintaining them.

Understanding the Food Hygiene Rating

The Food Hygiene Rating Scheme (FHRS), used by local authorities in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland, assesses a business on its ability to manage food safety in several critical areas. A score is given on a scale from 0 (‘urgent improvement necessary’) to 5 (‘very good’). The inspection covers the following key areas:

  1. Hygienic Food Handling
    This includes the preparation, cooking, re-heating, cooling, and storage of food. Ensuring that food is handled with care, using techniques that prevent contamination and ensure food is cooked and stored at safe temperatures, is crucial.
  2. Cleanliness and Condition of Facilities and Building
    The cleanliness of the kitchen, storage areas, restrooms, and the dining area plays a significant role in the rating. This also includes having proper waste disposal procedures and ensuring the maintenance of the physical structure and equipment.
  3. Management of Food Safety
    The effectiveness of procedures and systems to ensure food safety is evaluated. This encompasses the business’s records, food safety awareness by management, and staff training levels. It’s about demonstrating active and adequate management of potential hazards, from delivery to service.

The Journey to Excellence

At RabsChippy, achieving this rating was made possible by our team’s continuous effort and our comprehensive food safety practices. From daily cleaning schedules to regular staff training sessions on the latest food safety guidelines, every step we take is aimed at ensuring our food is not only delicious but also prepared in a clean and safe environment.

Implementing and maintaining high standards involves:
