What are the pros and cons of food hygiene rating schemes like this one? http://www.food.gov....cal-authorities

Some are timid and rob the world of the contributions they can otherwise make.

For me I like them. I have quite a bit of confidence in this scheme and as a consumer it provides me with information and choice. I cannot inspect the kitchens myself.

What do you think?

Simon,

I agree with what you said. If properly managed, the rating schemes provide a good motivation for the food service operators and helpful information to consumers.

If poorly administered, however, particularly if operators perform well at times and poorly at other times, the program has to promptly react to such situations. These variations (undulations) also have to be promptly and clearly communicated to the consumers. Otherwise, there will likely be some confusion. Consumers may proceed according to prior rather than current information about the rated establishments.

Do you have any additional thoughts?

Cheers!

Well, food hygiene rating schemes good motivation for food services agents. The systems help customers choose where to eat out or store for meals by providing them information about the cleanliness requirements in dining places, bars, takeaways, resorts and meals stores.

Personally I don't pay any attention. My favourite take away has a 2 star rating and it is still the best chinese food I've had outside China!

Do you know of a similar initiative in other countries (Ireland, USA, Canada, Australia, etc.)?
