Sunderland businesses have had food hygiene ratings of zero and one star since March, according to the Food Standards Agency
Sunderland City Council food safety inspectors rated these businesses in Wearside as having food hygiene ratings of zero or one star after visiting the sites.
A zero star rating is at the bottom of the scale and means “urgent improvement is needed”, while a one star rating means “major improvement is needed”.
Inspectors look at areas such as hygienic food handling, cleanliness and condition of facilities and buildings, and food safety management when assigning a rating.
Businesses that receive low ratings need to make urgent improvements to hygiene standards, with the food safety officer having several enforcement options at their disposal to ensure that improvements are made.
The food safety manager will also tell the company how quickly these improvements need to be made.
