Janet Williams, TDC environmental health and community safety manager, said: "We provide detailed feedback and guidance to those businesses who do score badly so they can take the necessary measures and improvements before applying for a rescoring inspection.

"At the end of September only one business in the district was rated at 1 or below out of 640 establishments which indicates that our proactive and supportive approach is delivering good results for the area."

Councillor Ken James, Torridge's lead member for environment, added: "TDC recognises the huge contribution our local food businesses have to the economy of the district and our food safety team work hard to support businesses to improve hygiene and standards for the benefit of residents, visitors and those businesses themselves.

"The food hygiene rating scheme gives our food businesses the recognition they deserve, and we urge people to check out scores before eating out or buying in Torridge."

A spokesman for North Devon Council's food safety team added: "Establishments can have minor defects in each element and still get a good (tier 3) rating.

"All businesses will be given written advice on how to maintain or improve their score.

"Businesses who are failing (tier 2 or less) will receive additional visits from council officers to ensure they can improve their rating to a good standard.

"If they fail to improve, additional enforcement action will be considered.

"Good premises or premises that have improved from less than 2 to 3 or more can request a reassessment from council officers."
