Restaurant website and app builder FOODit has announced extra support for fish and chip takeaways to improve their food hygiene ratings.
The FOODit team is working to help restaurants and takeaways receive the information they need to gain the highest score. This includes adding a new feature on the FOODit Order Manager app which offers quick access to the Food Standards Agency (FSA) guidelines.
Head of product at FOODit, Paul Sharp, said: “Having a good food hygiene rating is critical to customers – 68% of consumers* look at ratings when deciding where to eat.
“We are using technology to give takeaways the support they need – not just with their websites – but in achieving and maintaining the highest food quality standards,” said Paul.
The support has been announced ahead of the expected change in regulations, which will make it compulsory for food outlets in the UK to display their food hygiene ratings.
FOODit recently announced the winners of its Independent Takeaway Awards – all ten winners had food hygiene ratings of five.
