Your FAQ

Question: What does ‘exempt’ mean?

Answer: The two groups of exempt businesses are:
• businesses that are a low-risk to people’s health in terms of food safety and that you perhaps wouldn’t normally think of as a food business – for example, newsagents, chemist shops or visitor centres selling tins of biscuits
• childminders and businesses that offer caring services at home
These types of business can ask the Isle of Wight Council to receive a food hygiene rating if they wish at [email protected] or (01983) 823000. Only details of those in the first group will be published on food.gov.uk/ratings but those in the second group can share their rating with parents and others using their services
