Impact of mandatory display of food hygiene ratings in England

Impact of mandatory display of food hygiene ratings in England

The Food Standards Agency is seeking views on the initial draft of an IA exploring the costs and benefits of introducing the legislation that would be necessary to make the display of ratings at food outlets in England mandatory.

The background sections of the IA outline the rationale for putting the FHRS on a statutory footing in England and summarise the evidence that they have collected so far to inform the case for the Government’s consideration.

The IA also includes FSA’s initial assessment of the costs and benefits for consumers, for food businesses, for local authorities, and for the FSA.
