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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Food Standards Agency website is also a useful source of information.
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.
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.
This plan sets out how the Peterborough City Council (PCC) and Rutland County Council (RCC) will meet their statutory responsibilities for food and feed law enforcement.
These responsibilities include food safety, food standards, and labelling and composition of animal feeding stuffs.
