Hygiene Rating Scheme and Right Place to Eat are recent schemes under Project Serve Safe(FSSAI), initiated to ensure that consumers make informed choices while eating out and encourage food businesses to showcase and improve their food hygiene standards. It reflects the standards of food hygiene found on the date of inspection by the local authority or recognized audit agency.
HYGIENE RATING AUDIT (HRA)
Hygiene rating 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 transparent scoring and rating process will allow FBOs to showcase their level of compliance and excellent food hygiene quality and enable consumers to make informed choices about the foods and the places where they would like to eat. Through these choices, Food businesses will get encouraged to improve their hygiene standards & thus reduce the incidence of foodborne illness.
The main purpose of the scheme is to:
Allow consumers to make an informed food choice about where to eat and cultivate the Right eating habits
Encourage food businesses with high hygiene standards and to continue maintaining them and showcase the same to their consumers.
Motivate other food businesses having lower hygiene standards to improve.
Right Place to Eat
This scheme aims to bring about behavioral change among the people and ensure Food Security and Food Availability across every sector and thereby enriching every life. FBO with 4/5 in hygiene rating may volunteer for becoming a “Right Place to eat”. It is a voluntary initiative that can be undertaken by an FBO to add value to society and thereby increase its own commercial viability.
