The Covid-19 pandemic hit the food and drink industry hard - but that doesn’t mean hygiene standards should suffer as a result.

Local authorities across the UK were still carrying out safety inspections at cafes, takeaways and other food businesses throughout the pandemic, albeit far fewer than in previous years.

On-site inspections continued where there were serious concerns about risks to public health, according to the Food Standards Agency (FSA).

The FSA said inspections will be planned and delivered more routinely from next month and local authorities are already working on recovery plans.

Inspectors give venues a rating out of five for hygiene, with five stars being the best.

Using official data from the FSA, we can reveal which restaurants, cafes, takeaways and pubs received the lowest food hygiene ratings of either zero or one star in inspections held in 2021 in Manchester.

The information from the FSA is correct as of September 2021. Venues with new ratings pending were not included.
