The Health department’s new hygiene rating system for restaurants and cafes has been a huge hit – with many new users flooding on to the webpage yesterday to check out their favourite eateries.
The Eat Safe Jersey scheme was launched by the Environmental Health department last month, and will ultimately see every business in Jersey that sells food given a rating of up to five stars.
All of Jersey’s Michelin-starred restaurants got top marks, as you might expect, but the news wasn’t so great across the board. A total of 14 restaurants for a “two-star” rating, meaning that they are poor performers on the hygiene law – and two were given a dreaded “no-star” mark, which means that a restaurant or café is a “non-compliant performer, a general failure to comply with the Jersey Food Law with major effort required to rectify issues”.
A spokesman for the Health department confirmed that the new Eat Safe Jersey page – which you can access here – had been a big hit with the public.
Figures for the website showed that traffic had been up by 40% overall.
It’s the second time this month that the States have seen traffic flooding into their websites – their vote.je website crashed temporarily during election night because so many people were trying to get on to check the election results.
