THIS month, two food outlets in Brighton and Hove have been listed with a “one star rating” after being visited by hygiene inspectors.

That means "major improvement in food hygiene is needed".

Businesses can receive ratings ranging from zero (which means urgent improvement is necessary) to five (very good).

ONE RATING: Major improvement necessary

Toota, Preston Street, Brighton

The Argus:

Hygienic food handling

Hygienic handling of food including preparation, cooking, re-heating, cooling and storage

Improvement necessary

Cleanliness and condition of facilities and building

Cleanliness and condition of facilities and building (including having appropriate layout, ventilation, hand washing facilities and pest control) to enable good food hygiene

Generally satisfactory

Management of food safety

System or checks in place to ensure that food sold or served is safe to eat, evidence that staff know about food safety, and the food safety officer has confidence that standards will be maintained in future

Major improvement necessary

Constantinople Cafe and Bistro, Norfolk Square

The Argus:

Hygienic food handling

Hygienic handling of food including preparation, cooking, re-heating, cooling and storage

Improvement necessary

Cleanliness and condition of facilities and building

Cleanliness and condition of facilities and building (including having appropriate layout, ventilation, hand washing facilities and pest control) to enable good food hygiene


Management of food safety

System or checks in place to ensure that food sold or served is safe to eat, evidence that staff know about food safety, and the food safety officer has confidence that standards will be maintained in future

Major improvement necessary

The main drive of the city council’s food safety team is public protection and public health.

Team leader Nick Wilmot said food hygiene across the city has improved since the team has been in action.

Talking about why making the ratings public was necessary, Mr Wilmot said they were “another tool we use to improve standards within business”.

Mr Wilmot said if there was any serious risk to the public then the business would be closed down.

The frequency of food safety inspections varies from every six months to three years.

The council decides the frequency of inspection based on the “risk posed by the food business”.

Businesses can appeal and have a “right to reply” to give their view on their food hygiene rating.

Businesses can also request a re-visit and a re-score if they have made the necessary improvements – although re-scoring will incur a cost.
