Two businesses in Northumberland have a ZERO food hygiene rating
A takeaway and pub restaurant in Northumberland have been ordered to improve their hygiene by the Food Standards Agency (FSA).
The FSA visits eateries across the country to judge how clean and well-run they are. Many pass with flying colours, but others are told they need to make major improvements or run the risk of being shut down.
These ratings provide a snapshot of an establishment's standards at the time of an inspection. If hygiene is very good and the business fully complies with the law, five is the top of the scale and the highest score they can achieve. They must do well in three areas:

• How hygienically the food is handled;
• The physical condition of the business;
• How the business manages ways of keeping food safe, looking at processes, training and systems to ensure good hygiene is maintained.
A zero indicates failures across all three areas.
