Milton Keynes takeaway gets Zero for food hygiene


A takeaway restaurant in Milton Keynes has been given the worst possible hygiene rating, after being given a score of zero and told that “urgent improvement is necessary”.

MK Peri Peri Hut in Giffard Park was inspected by council bosses in November, and is the only Milton Keynes outlet to have got a score of zero in 2014. The scores are based on the latest inspections by the Food Standards Agency (FSA).

Environmental health inspectors have visited 1,516 food outlets since the system was introduced four years ago, but MK Peri Peri Hut is the only venue to currently have a zero rating.

Ratings are based on how the food is handled, the condition and cleanliness of the premises and the management of the business which includes good record keeping.

MK Peri Peri Hut was unavailable for comment.

The inspections, carried out by Milton Keynes Council’s environmental health department, run the rule over food hygiene and safety, structural compliance and confidence in management.

25 businesses received the next-lowest hygiene rating of One Star last year. This means the owners have been told that “Major improvement is necessary”.
