Food delivery platform, Just Eat has announced plans to display the official Food Hygiene Rating of each of its UK restaurant partners directly on its platform both in-app and online.

Following consultations with the Food Standards Agency (FSA) and Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH), Just Eat will launch its trial of the initiative in Northern Ireland in early 2019 with over 600 restaurants. Following a full evaluation of the trial, a national roll-out will be implemented later in the year.

Whilst Just Eat already provides a link to the FSA’s website on each restaurant’s menu page so that customers can access food hygiene ratings, the change will make ratings instantly clear in-app and online.

Graham Corfield, UK managing director at Just Eat, said: “We are always looking to do more for both our partners and customers and displaying hygiene ratings will provide better access to this important information than ever before.”
