Hygiene Rating has been initiated by FSSAI with intent of ensuring that consumer make informed choices while eating out and also encouraging food businesses to showcase and improve their food hygiene standards.

Hygiene Rating reflects the standards of food hygiene found on the date of inspection by the local authority or recognized third party audit agency. This is a voluntary scheme applicable to food businesses supplying food directly to consumers either on or off the premises and food businesses are rated on the basis of food hygiene and safety conditions found at the time of inspection.

This scheme is being implemented in

  • Food Service Establishments such as restaurants, cafeteria, dhabahs, etc.
  • Bakeries
  • Sweet Shops
  • Meat Retail Shops
