Just Eat to display food hygiene ratings

Food delivery platform Just Eat has announced it will display food hygiene ratings from as early as next year.

Following consultations with the Food Standards Agency (FSA) and Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH), the move will be trialled in Northern Ireland in early 2019 with more than 600 restaurants, and a nationwide rollout is planned for later in the year.

Just Eat currently provides a link to the FSA's website on each restaurant's menu page.

Graham Corfield, UK managing director at Just Eat, said: "We are always looking to do more for both our partners and customers and displaying hygiene ratings will provide better access to this important information than ever before."

Anne Godfrey, chief executive of the CIEH, said: "This is a positive step in the right direction from Just Eat. Openly displaying food hygiene ratings next to food outlets on their website will not only help consumers make the best and safest decision about where to eat, but also promote best practice."

Heather Hancock, FSA chairman, added: "Displaying food hygiene ratings digitally on the Just Eat platform will mean that consumers see them at the point where they order food. They will know the food hygiene standards in the places their food is coming from."
