The council's Environmental Health team is responsible for enforcing the Food Safety Act 1990 to ensure hygienic conditions in food businesses. This is reflected in the Food Hygiene Rating Scheme (FHRS), which Hastings Borough Council participates in, giving businesses a score for the standards of hygiene they have achieved.
In this section you can find out about starting a new food business, along with links and documents to assist you, as well as information on appealing or requesting a re-score under the FHRS.
