Many councils and government departments around the country are instigating rating programs for restaurants and other food service outlets. In NSW the Scores on Doors trial began earlier this year. The program provides a ranking to each outlet: A is Excellent, B is Good, C is Acceptable and P is Pending.

The scores provide consumers with an understanding of how food service businesses comply with food safety and hygiene requirements.

In Brisbane the EatSafe program has also recently been introduced. The rating is based on an assessment of the business’s food safety management practices with a simple star system where 5 stars is excellent and zero stars is non-compliant.

These scoring programs are in addition to the Name and Shame program that operates in NSW by the NSW Food Authority. This program actively names food service businesses on a dedicated website outlining the offences discovered.
