Strive for 5

EH Sense logo

All food businesses are given a food hygiene rating between 0 (urgent improvement necessary) and 5 (very good) under the Food Standard Agency’s Food Hygiene Rating Scheme following each food hygiene inspection.

A good food hygiene rating can help attract new customers, drive sales and motivate staff to continue striving for excellence.

Strive for 5 is designed to put you in the best position to meet legal requirements and achieve the top food hygiene rating to put you ahead of the competition. The product is ideal for new food businesses who want to start on the right track or for established businesses who want to improve their current rating.

EH Sense can provide this service, including a Safer Food Better Business pack for £249 (vat exempt).
