Food hygiene ratings advice for businesses

Your right to reply

The purpose of the right to reply is to enable you to give an explanation of how the business has improved its hygiene standards or if there were unusual circumstances at the time of inspection. This response will be published online, alongside the rating.

It is not for making complaints or for criticising the scheme or the food safety officer. If you wish to use this Right to Reply please use the form below or send a letter or email to the officer who undertook your inspection.Your comments will be reviewed by the officer before being published online to make sure that they do not contain any offensive, clealry inaccurate or irrelevant remarks. There will be a statement that will highlight that the accuracy of your comments has not been verifified by local authority officers.

You should send your completed form, letter or email to Harborough District Council, Regulatory Services, Symington Building, Adam and Eve Street, Market Harborough, LE16 7AG or email it to .

There is no deadline for this so you can submit your ‘right to reply’ at any time up until your next inspection when you will get a new food hygiene rating.
