Environmental Health Officers carry out food hygiene inspections at all businesses that supply or prepare food for the public within the Bailiwick.

As part of the inspection officers assess three key areas to calculate the star rating;

Longer term, we're taking a policy letter to the states of Guernsey hopefully we'll be doing that in the next few months and that will look at options on what we're going to do, where we're going to go for the future.
