Food hygiene and safety

We aim to improve and enforce standards of food hygiene, health and safety in food premises within the borough. In order to do this, we:

  • Inspect local food businesses to enforce standards of cleanliness and good hygiene practices
  • Investigate complaints about hygiene or contaminated foods (e.g. glass, metal, insects)
  • Randomly sample purchase foods to test the quality and safety
  • Investigate cases of food poisoning
  • Run a National Food Hygiene Rating Scheme in conjunction with other Local Authorities in Leicestershire
