It means that of Milton Keynes's 244 takeaways with ratings 64 per cent have ratings of five and none have zero ratings.

The FSA scheme gives businesses a rating from 5 to 0 which is displayed at their premises and online.

The scheme is law in Wales and Northern Ireland but display of the rating sticker is voluntary in England.

Rating system:

5 – hygiene standards are very good

4 – hygiene standards are good

3 – hygiene standards are generally satisfactory

2 – some improvement is necessary

1 – major improvement is necessary

0 – urgent improvement is required.
