Sunderland City Council food safety inspectors have assessed these businesses for their food hygiene and given them scores from zero to five.

A zero star rating is bottom of the scale, and means “urgent improvement is required”, while a five-star rating is top of the scale, and means “the hygiene standards are very good” and fully comply with the law.

Inspectors look at areas such as hygienic food handling, cleanliness and condition of facilities and building, along with management of food safety, when giving a rating.

Food safety officers have given new food hygiene ratings to these Sunderland businesses.

For a business to get the top rating, they must do well in all three elements and if the top rating is not given, the officer will explain the actions needed to improve their hygiene rating.

Businesses that are given low ratings must make urgent improvements to hygiene standards, with the food safety officer having several enforcement options available to them to ensure that improvements are made.

The food safety officer will also tell the business how quickly these improvements must be made and a reassessment will be carried out to ensure that the issues raised are corrected.

If improvements are not made, the owners could face legal action from the local authority.
