Food Hygiene Rating (Promotion of Food Hygiene Ratings)(Wales) Regulations

Food Hygiene Rating (Promotion of Food Hygiene Ratings)(Wales) Regulations

The Welsh government have launched a consultation document asking for comments on proposed regulations which set out how certain food businesses should promote their food hygiene ratings under the statutory Food Hygiene Rating Scheme. These draft regulations have been revised following a consultation in 2014. The regulations apply to certain business types and publicity materials meeting specific criteria set out in the regulations.

The regulations are to be made under section 10 of the Food Hygiene Rating (Wales) Act 2013. The regulations will require certain types of food businesses in Wales to display a statement or an image of their valid food hygiene rating on certain types of printed publicity materials. This statement will direct customers ordering food remotely to the Food Standards Agency website where food hygiene ratings can be seen online.
