Food Safety Questionnaire

Businesses who are operating with food and/or have received a letter regarding the need to complete a food safety form, can do so online by clicking the green button on the right.

Food hygiene rating

We take the health of our residents very seriously and we carry out regular inspections on all food premises in Peterborough to help protect our residents.

If your business is a restaurant, takeaway, cafe, pub, hotel, supermarket or other retail food outlet where consumers can eat or buy food, you will be given a food hygiene rating

To contact us, please call customer services on 01733 747474 or email

The Food Standards Agency website is also a useful source of information.

Starting and registering a food business

To start up a food business, please visit the Food Standards Agency website to get all the advice you will need.

Registration of premises used for food businesses (including market stalls, delivery vehicles, and other moveable structures) is required by law.

Frequency of inspection visits depend on the degree of risk involved.

Food labelling

Food labelling requirements are quite complex and vary from product to product. More information can be found on our Trading Standards page.

Food complaints

When making a food complaint we will require the following information:

  • your name, address and telephone number
  • proof of purchase where relevant
  • storage of the food i.e in a refrigerator or freezer
  • as much of the food as possible
  • the name and address of the business in question
  • details of foreign body, if applicable (please retain any foreign bodies)
  • brief details of what the complaint is about
  • packaging (please retain any packaging).

You may of course deal with a complaint yourself by returning to the trader concerned and explaining your problem. It is also a good idea to put your complaint in writing and always keep a copy of the letter.
