5* food Hygiene Rating
Here at The Candy Floss King, we take food hygiene very seriously. Drawing upon our previous training from within the fast food industry and putting this into practice with our own company. we gained a 5* food hygiene rating during our inspection from Test Valley Borough Council. Every food at home business NEEDS to be registered with there local council (Test Valley Borough being our local council).
This is a easy and FREE process to do for any food business. To show that we have not just taken a picture from the internet please view the reverse of our hygiene rating to the right. We are honoured to achieve such a high rating with other operators enquiring to us how to obtain such a rating.
When booking The Candy Floss King, rest assured your hiring a professional company who adheres to all current and local legislations.
The Food hygiene inspection covers all aspects of a food business. On how we store our stock, cleaning methods from equipment through to staff clothing. Also inspected is all our paperwork on weekly tasks and monthly tasks for example giving the candy floss machine a deep clean.
Our food hygiene certificate is held with us and displayed at every event or available upon request.
What is the food hygiene rating scheme for?
The scheme helps you choose where to eat out or shop for food by giving you information about the hygiene standards in restaurants, pubs, cafés, takeaways, hotels and other places you eat, as well as supermarkets and other food shops.
It’s not easy to judge hygiene standards on appearance alone, so the rating gives you an idea of what’s going on in the kitchen, or behind closed doors. You can check the ratings and use the information to switch to or choose a place with higher standards. It’s also good to share this information with friends and family.
The scheme also encourages businesses to improve hygiene standards.
NATIONAL FOOD HYGIENE RATING SCHEME
Test Valley Borough Council participates in the national Food Hygiene Rating Scheme (FHRS) run by the Food Standards Agency (FSA).
The FHRS has replaced the Hampshire Safe2eat scheme. It provides information about hygiene standards in food premises at the time they are inspected to help consumers choose where to eat and shop for food.
The FHRS gives each business a rating after it has been inspected by a food safety officer. The rating is based upon the following criteria:
How hygienically the food is handled – how it is stored, prepared, cooked, cooled, re-heated and served.
The condition of the structure of the buildings – the cleanliness, layout, lighting, ventilation and other facilities.
How the business manages and records what it does to make sure food is safe.
A business will be given a certificate and sticker after each inspection indicating one of the below ratings. Businesses are encouraged to display their certificate and sticker in a place where you can easily see them.

The food hygiene rating or inspection result given to a business reflects the standards of food hygiene found on the date of inspection or visit by the local authority. The food hygiene rating is not a guide to food quality.
