Food Standards Scotland review of the Food Hygiene Information scheme (FHIS). Your views required


Consumers in Scotland can see how well food businesses in their area have fared in food hygiene inspections. The scheme applies to all food outlets that supply food to consumers. Each food outlet is asked to display a certificate (and/or sticker) on the door or window of their premises, saying whether they have passed their hygiene inspection, or whether improvement is required.

Food Standards Scotland are currently reviewing the FHIS scheme and would be very interested to hear the reasons you use it (as a consumer or as a business). They would like to know:

  • What does and doesn’t work about the current scheme?
  • What would encourage consumers to use a hygiene information scheme?
  • Would having more tiers, influence their choice of establishment?
  • To what extent do you support/not support mandatory display, and why?

Please send your responses to Calum Yule or get in touch ( 01224 288 367) if you would like to discuss the review further. Calum would also welcome any other comments or thoughts you have relating to the current scheme or its future development.
