When we eat out we take for granted that food we buy in shops or restaurants will not do us any harm. Why can we be so confident?
The task of ensuring that restaurants, cafes and take-a-ways serve only food prepared under the best possible hygienic conditions falls to our Food Team.
The team is based at the Town Hall and Timberham House at Gatwick Airport. They regularly inspect around 750 food premises in the borough.
National Food Hygiene Rating Scheme
Have you ever wondered about the hygiene of your favourite restaurant's kitchen?
The Food Hygiene Rating Scheme outlines the standard of food hygiene found in local food premises.
The scheme encourages and recognises the many food businesses that achieve full legal compliance. It also allows the public to find out about food hygiene standards within businesses and make informed decisions about where they eat in Crawley.
