I recently received an enquiry for Level 2 Food Safety training from a local business under new management.

They mentioned that they are expecting an EHO inspection soon and were feeling quite anxious about it, as they weren’t quite sure what to expect but felt that some food safety training would help them secure a 5-star food hygiene rating.

For all owners and managers, and especially new ones, the prospect of a visit from the EHO is naturally daunting; the impact of a low hygiene rating can be devastating to a food business, with 68% of consumers stating the food hygiene rating would affect their decision to eat there.

However, there is no need to panic; I have worked with numerous businesses to help them prepare for and successfully achieve a 5-star food hygiene rating.

With a little planning and preparation, obtaining a 5-star rating is within reach of every single food business – regardless of size or turnover.

My “Preparing for a visit from the EHO” E-book is full of useful advice, including;

  • an outline of what the EHO inspector is looking for
  • a practical checklist of things to do in preparation
  • top tips on how to best handle the inspection itself

And it is available to download completely FREE from my Resources page

Using this checklist you will be able to see your business through the eyes of the EHO inspector which will help you identify and address any weaker areas before the visit takes place.

If you aren’t sure where to start, or how to implement the suggestions or simply need some extra support to get new policies and procedures established, don’t worry; I can help.

In addition to food safety and allergen awareness training courses, I have many years experience offering a consultancy service to support catering businesses looking to develop and implement better practices.

Please get in touch and we can work together to create a plan.
