The following is a Press Release from Knowsley Council about their newly-launched Scores on the Doors Scheme under which all the nearly 450 Food Premises in the Borough of Knowsley have been rated as part of a national scheme.
Only 28 premises, including us, were awarded the Excellent Five Star Rating, making Domino's Pizza Huyton the only Hot Food Takeaway or Delivery Business in the area to earn this rating.
You can order your food from us, confident in the knowledge that we always maintain the highest standards of hygiene, ensure all of our staff (including drivers) complete The Basic Food Hygiene Certificate before they start work with us, and that we maintain a fully-compliant HACCP Log (which means we have a fully-documented system of temperature control and cleaning procedures).
Here is the Press Release
Knowsley Council is introducing ‘Scores on the Doors’, a scheme which ranks the results of food hygiene inspections in a five star rating system.
The results are available to the public through the Knowsley Council website (www.knowsley.gov.uk/scoresonthedoors).
Food hygiene inspections are carried out at all Knowsley businesses which handle food, in line with national guidelines.
The scores are awarded for food hygiene and safety procedures, condition of the premises and the management of the business and its food safety systems.
The inspections are then converted into the following star ratings:
Star rating Standard of premises
* * * * * (5 star) Excellent
* * * * (4 star) Very good
* * * (3 star) Good
* * (2 star) Fair
* (1 star) Poor
(0 stars) Major improvement needed
Cllr Ken Keith, Knowsley Council’s Cabinet Member for Corporate and Customer Services, said: “The ‘Scores on the Doors’ scheme will be really helpful for people in Knowsley to decide where to eat and buy their food because they can now see how premises are performing on food hygiene.
“Having this public rating system is a great incentive for local businesses to make sure they are following all food hygiene guidelines and achieving the very highest standards.
“I congratulate those premises which are performing well and receiving the highest ratings and would encourage those performing less well to take on board our ratings and recommendations to improve their standards.
“Knowsley’s Environmental Health team will continue to work closely with all premises to make sure they have the highest possible standards of food hygiene.”
