Recently, BBC News revealed information of its investigation of the famous in the UK food order and delivering app Just Eat – and the results are very frightening.

In the UK, local authorities are accountable for carrying out hotels and takeaway interrogation. The ratings, however, don’t seem to protect commerce owners from placing further advertising with the app.

In England, Wales, and Northern Ireland, hotels and takeaways are provided a food hygiene rating reaching from 0 (in need of urgent development) to 5 (food hygiene is very wonderful) by the Food Standards Agency.

An amazing 64.5% of Birmingham takeaways highlighted on the app – 20 out of the 31 involved, have been rated as zero for sanitation. For Liverpool, the results are even poor, with 69% of highlighted restaurants getting a zero-rating.

Manchester and London are all better off – but only merely, with an average of 50%.

The Just Eat app has been asked to calculate the issue and ensure hotels and food occupations don’t abuse its system. As a response to consumer rights activists, the company has addressed that they are taking the matter very seriously, promising to keep a complete focus on the ratings.


Eagling Council’s environmental health calculation group deems a lot of London’s discos and takeaway areas a health hazard. From pests and crawlies to food safety troubles, the zero-hygiene rating is hazardous both for those who eat in the hotels and for the people who decide to order out.

Apps like Just Eat, and there are various, might save potential clients the inconvenience of going out for a meal, but regrettably, they also mean users don’t notice the bad condition of some of the areas doing occupation there.

On digital websites and apps, customers are often welcome with good consumer reviews. Sadly, none of these services includes hygiene score revelation in any way.


Just like the various health and wellness blogs will tell you, trying to distance yourself from hazardous chemicals and other health dangers is necessary to your long-term wellbeing.

Just think about spending your full weekend tidying up your house – dusting, washing, vacuuming, and scrubbing away at every corner in the resident. Then, you go and cook yourself a healthy meal, with all the essential nutrients, staying away from dangerous ingredients. The next day, you come to your resident from work, and you are too tired to cook anything. So, you open the most famous app you can come across, and your order from the best restaurant. As far as you know, it’s all safe and tidy, correct? Well, perhaps, if you’re fortunate enough. But you might really be ordering from an area with a zero-hygiene rating – you have the awareness.


In this special case, Just Eat has said it will be attentively working to maximize hygiene standards. It’s even gone as far as highlighting that ’whenever any potential food safety trouble is brought to our notice, our restaurant supportive team will review, investigate and communicate with the local authority. Food Standard Agency says sanitation ratings for each restaurant should be showcased individually on the organization’s page in the app in a clear and simple to read manner and that there require being the more proactive change.

A lot of food occupations have failed to realize the importance of implementing correct cleaning practices and are now being rejected by customers and the media alike.

Asking your workers to clean up on top of their common duties can seem economic in the short term, but it rarely disburses any dividends in the long run. The best solution is always to use professional cleaners who are adequately trained and understand the requirements for complying with sanitation regulations.

Always try to maintain Food Standard Agency measures while delivering the services in the hotel or any other place.
