Everything You Need To Know When Making a Food Poisoning Claim
Eating in has become the new eating out. With covid restrictions in place, takeaway and convenience foods have become increasingly popular.
Sales for takeaway services such as JustEat, Deliveroo and UberEats were up 21% in the first part of the year, with JustEat reporting a 44% increase in revenue.
According to Statistica ‘revenues from online takeaway platforms and restaurant delivery are expected to continue growing, especially as more consumers turn to ordering food during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic’ with ‘UK households spending an average of around five British pounds per person per week on takeaway meals.’
With an increase in the consumption of takeaway and convenience foods, it is good practice to ensure that you order food from a restaurant with good to very good food hygiene standards. The Foods Standard Agency website allows you to search for a takeaway or restaurant of your choice and discover what it’s hygiene rating is. It’s good practice to check this when considering a food outlet.
