Dealing with newly registered low risk Food hygiene premises
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the food hygiene
inspection programme has been severely impacted. There has been a
very limited number of programmed visits undertaken, meaning that
the programme is behind by over a year. Once the Covid-19 lock down
has been lifted, inspections will need to focus on higher risk food
premises rather than processing low risk food registrations.
Examples of businesses that would be classed as low risk include,
domestic cake makers, childminders (serving fruit/low risk snacks),
chemists & clothing retailers selling sweets.
