Scores on Doors is a hygiene and food safety rating program that allows you to make informed choices about where to eat or shop for food.
You become aware of how well local restaurants, cafes, bakeries, bistros and takeaway shops are complying with the NSW hygiene and food safety requirements by showing the result of their last food safety and hygiene inspection.
During routine inspections, businesses are assessed against a food safety checklist and assigned a star rating reflecting their performance.
Businesses display the certificate and sticker, showing the score they are awarded.
Certificates and stickers should be displayed in a prominent position, usually the front window or door or inside.
The program promotes competition and encourages businesses to strive for the highest hygiene score through good hygiene and food safety practices.
That helps reduce food safety risks and illness from food, so you can enjoy your meal with greater confidence.
If a business is not participating in the program, ask them why and suggest they do!
