RS Sales & Distribution has created a Food Hygiene Rating Scheme (FHRS) customer support pack for retailers who are looking for help achieving a food hygiene rating of five before the display of FHRS ratings is made mandatory in England some time this year. The user-friendly pack, which can be downloaded from the RS website, contains information on what retailers can expect when a Food Safety Officer (FSO) inspects their business. The pack also outlines how RS can assist with achieving a rating of five through the recommendation and supply of the right equipment and cleaning materials.

Retailers can also draw on the support of RS to help them develop a best practice cleaning programme comprising a cleaning manual, cleaning logs and COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) data.

RS sales director, James Hayfield, said: "We can provide retailers with the tools and support they need to reduce their overheads, improve efficiency and compliance."
