Takeaway orders rating plan welcomed

Customers ordering takeaway food over the phone would be encouraged to ask for the outlet's food hygiene ratings, if new rules get the go-ahead.

Restaurants, takeaways and supermarkets currently have to prominently display ratings stickers inside their premises - from 0 (lowest) to 5 (highest).

Now the Welsh government wants to improve awareness of the ratings.

The proposed new rules would also force ratings information to be printed on takeaway menus and leaflets.

Julie Barratt, director of the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, welcomed the plan.
