"Name and shame" food hygiene site a success

Monday 02 February 2015

The launch of the Jersey Government's food hygiene list at the end of last year saw 14 restaurants given poor performance ratings, but it appears the naming and shaming has helped because there are now only seven with 2 stars or less.

However there is a new restaurant, the Mandarin Room, which has been given a 0. A '0' rating, the worst a restaurant can receive, is said to be a non-compliant performer, with a general failure to comply with the Jersey Food Law and major effort required to rectify issues​.

The six food establishments with a two-star rating following the more recent inspections were all on the original list, and are:

  • Coffee Junction
  • Coffee Junction (mobile unit)
  • James Street newsagents
  • Max Grill
  • Rosedale Stores
  • Snow Hill Chip Shop

A '2' star rating means ​​the restaurant is a poor performer, with a low level of compliance with the Jersey Food Law and more effort required.

The hygiene scheme, called Eat Safe Jersey was launched by the Environmental Health department in September 2014, and covers any business which sells food.

Also making a big improvement from the original listing is the San Marco in La Motte street, which has gone from a 0 rating to a 3 star which means a good performer and satisfactory standards. A previous 0 rated restaurant, the Madeira Club in Waterloo Street is currently not listed.

All businesses with a 3 star rating or above, can display that on their premises. If you don't see a star rating then you can ask a member of staff, or look it up online. The aim of the scheme is to improve understanding of the food hygiene laws and encourage businesses to improve and maintain their standards. The new listing appears to show the system is helping.
