Food hygiene and food standard inspections

The purpose of a food hygiene inspection is to ensure that food sold to the public is safe to consume. We visit most of the food premises in Spelthorne each year. New food businesses will also be inspected soon after opening.

What we check for

We not only ensure that the structure, fittings and operators in food businesses do not contaminate foodstuffs, but also assess the risks involved in storing, preparing and producing food.
