MetadataShow full item record
The aim of the study was to evaluate how compliant food businesses are displaying their National Food Hygiene Rating Scheme (NFHRS) score, looking for any interesting associations between displaying/ not displaying. The study included 98 food businesses part of the mandatory NFHRS within Torfaen County Borough Council. Assumptions were made that, businesses awarded a low rating score were less likely to display than those who received a higher rating score. Other factors including, type of business and location of business were observed, although no assumptions were made whether these factors would impact compliance or not. Results from the 98 premises observed in this study show that 93.9% of businesses were displaying their score. This meant that the non-compliance was fairly low with 6.1% of businesses not displaying their NFHRS score. Out of the 6.1% of businesses not displaying, 100% of these had a rating score of either 1 or 2. In order to test the significance of the association between non-compliance and low scoring, A Fishers Exact test was carried out, proving that there was a statistically significant association between the two variables tested. Tests were also carried out to test the significance of the association between location and score, as well as type of business. No significant results were found for these factors.
