Forty-five catering businesses came together to celebrate their success in maintaining top marks for food hygiene over the past five years.

They have all been given the highest rating possible under the national Food Hygiene Rating Scheme (FHRS) every year since the scheme was adopted by Fenland District Council in 2011.

Food hygiene rating assessments are carried out by the council’s environmental health officers during unannounced inspections. There are six levels of rating from 0 (urgent improvement necessary) to 5 (very good).

Each of the 45 businesses was presented with a “Fenland’s High 5s” certificate at an event in Fenland Hall in March.

Councillor Will Sutton, FDC’s deputy leader, said: “Your success is down to your hard work and commitment to ensuring that high standards of hygiene are maintained in your business. That is why you deserve this High 5s accolade.”
