Pronto Pizza in Burnley received a Food Hygiene rating of one

Following an inspection of a food business, the inspecting officer assigns a numerical score to the following three areas:

Level of compliance with food hygiene and safety procedures (e.g. food handling practices, temperature control)

Level of compliance with structural requirements (e.g. cleanliness, condition of structure)

Confidence in management.

In the case of Pronto, inspectors said that “major improvement was necessary” in the management of food safety.

“Improvement was necessary” in hygienic food handling, while the cleanliness and the condition of the facilities and the building was found to be “generally satisfactory”.
