Health Minister Visits Hackney

Published on: 21 December 2012

The Health Minister, Anna Soubry MP, visited the Lardo restaurant in Hackney last week to launch the Food Hygiene Rating Scheme.

The scheme is designed to help local people choose where to eat out or shop for food by providing the hygiene standards in restaurants, pubs, cafés, takeaways, hotels and other places to eat, as well as supermarkets and other food shops. It is also designed to encourage businesses to improve hygiene standards.

People in Hackney can find out the food hygiene standards of a restaurant, takeaway or food shop by visiting the Food Standards Agency’s website here
