These 13 Peterborough shops have all been given the either zero or one-star ratings by the Food Standards Agency meaning major or urgent improvement is needed.
Zero star means ‘Urgent Improvement Necessary’ while One Star means ‘Major Improvement Necessary. The good news is 1,360 businesses in Peterborough are rated as Three Star ‘Satisfactory’ or above!
Each business is given their hygiene rating when it is inspected by a food safety officer from the business’s local authority.
The inspection criteria include:
* How hygienically the food is handled
* How it is prepared, cooked, re-heated, cooled and stored
* The condition of the structure of the buildings
* The cleanliness, layout, lighting, ventilation and other facilities
* How the business manages and records what it does to make sure food is safe
At the end of the inspection, the business is given one of the six ratings from 0-5.
All of these ratings are accurate according to the Food Standards Agency website as of February 16, 2018
NOTE: Maxum Foods of Park Road,Peterborough, originally appeared in this list. However, the Peterborough Telegraph has since been contacted by Peterborough City Council who confirmed it had made a mistake and that the business is rated as FOUR STAR out of five.
