New research from Toluna, on behalf of hygiene product manufacturer Wrap Film Systems, has revealed that more than two-thirds of people put hygiene first when it comes to choosing where they dine, and a further 84% wouldn't eat somewhere if they heard it had bad hygiene ratings.
Paul Feery, commercial director of Wrap Film Systems, commented that a high number of those surveyed (97%) believed that the Food Standard Agency Food Hygiene Rating should be publicly displayed.
"The fact is an average to low hygiene score can now have serious repercussions on an operator's success, with half of the people we surveyed stating they wouldn't eat at a restaurant with a score of 3 or below," he said.
