Scores on Doors - business information
Scores on Doors is a food safety and hygiene scoring program that displays the results of the food premises inspections. It promotes to the public how well local restaurants, cafes, take-away shops, bakeries and taverns are complying with hygiene and food safety requirements.
The program rates a food business's compliance with hygiene and food safety requirements based on the existing, mandatory inspections carried out by the City's Environmental Health Officers. There are no extra inspections or costs involved.
The inspection of the food business involves assessing how food is stored, prepared, cooked and served, food handler hygiene and knowledge, cleaning and sanitisation and pest control amongst other items.
The City's Environmental Health Officers will carry out unannounced inspections and premises that score three stars or above will then be offered a certificate to display in a prominent position such as the front window or behind the counter.
The star rating system:
The highest expected level of hygiene and food safety practices.
The business has in place very good hygiene and food safety standards. Some minor areas will need to be addressed to get a higher result.
The business has a good standard of hygiene and food safety. A number of non-critical areas were found which need attention to get a higher result.
