A FISH and chip shop in Orford has been hit with a disappointing food hygiene rating following its latest inspection.

The Greenwood Fryery, off Greenwood Crescent in Orford, has been given a low food hygiene score after Food Standards Agency inspectors came to call.

Establishments are inspected by the FSA against the following criteria:

  • Hygienic food handling - Hygienic handling of food including preparation, cooking, re-heating, cooling and storage.
  • Management of food safety - System or checks in place to ensure that food sold or served is safe to eat, evidence that staff know about food safety, and the food safety officer has confidence that standards will be maintained in future.
  • Cleanliness and condition of facilities and building - Cleanliness and condition of facilities and building (including having appropriate layout, ventilation, hand washing facilities and pest control) to enable good food hygiene.

There is a mandatory delay of 35 days between an inspection taking place and the results being made publicly available on the FSA's website.

The fish and chip shop was inspected on October 12, and was given a rating of two-out-of-five for food hygiene.

According to the results online, the Greenwood Fryery was rated 'generally satisfactory' for the management of food safety and hygienic food handling.

However, 'improvements [are] necessary' regarding the cleanliness and condition of the facilities and building.

All information is taken from the Food Standards Agency and is accurate at the time of writing.
