Food Safety: Rating Scheme for Business

The City of Salisbury participates in the food safety rating scheme for cafes, restaurants, hotels, delicatessens, takeaways and bakeries. The scheme has resulted in significant food safety improvements in these businesses.

During routine food safety inspections, Environmental Health Officers calculate a score based on how well the food business meets food safety standards. This score is interpreted into a star rating:

3 stars - good

4 stars - very good

5 stars - excellent

Businesses that score 3, 4 or 5 stars receive a certificate to display proudly and let customers know food safety standards have been met. If a score of less than 3 stars is calculated a certificate will not be awarded and council will work with the business to improve compliance.

The Food Safety Rating Scheme helps customers make informed choices about where they eat.
