TWO-HUNDRED and seventeen premises, including bars, cafes, food stores and restaurants in London have been warned to clean up their act after receiving ‘zero’ rating for food hygiene.

London food businesses, like everywhere else in the UK, are monitored closely by the Food Standards Agency to maintain or improve hygiene standards. This protects the consumer from potential food poisoning or other illness passed on through bad hygiene. It can also benefit the local economy through tourism; for instance, if a town or city has a strong reputation for food services and products then it may attract more visitors.

Consumer magazine Which? found six London boroughs scored the lowest in food hygiene (as of February 2015), including Lewisham, Ealing, Harrow, Camden and Brent.

Enfield was the worst, reports DESIblitz, with only 54.1 per cent rate of compliance for 2,468 premises.
