A POPULAR chippy has been handed a five-star food hygiene rating for the third time in a row. 

Foley Fish Bar on Stourport Road, Kidderminster, has been given top marks by the Food Standards Agency. 

Reacting to the rating, Foley Fish Bar said on Facebook: "Another 5 star food hygiene rating 

"Triple 5 achieved meaning 3 x 5 star ratings over the last 6 years. 

"Thank you to staff for keeping the shop to such a high standard."

The ratings have been published on the Food Standards Agency’s website which rates businesses from zero to five so customers can make more informed choices about where to buy and eat food.

A rating of five means hygiene standards are very good, four means hygiene standards are good, three means hygiene standards are generally satisfactory, two means some improvement is necessary, a rating of one means major improvement is necessary and a rating of zero means urgent improvement is required.

People can see the results of all food hygiene inspections via the FSA website or on the national ratings.food.gov.uk website.
