How we inspect food hygiene standards
We regularly inspect the food hygiene standards of all businesses in North Lanarkshire that serve, sell, handle or produce food.
This means that we check your local corner shop and multi-national food manufacturers as well as supermarkets, restaurants, kitchens and cafés. We visit some businesses more than others if the possible risk is higher - for example, hospital kitchens.
As a result of our inspections we give each business:
- a food hygiene rating of either "Pass" or "Improvement Required"
- a letter or report giving details of our findings
