Awards for Highbury Farm

Food Standards Hygiene (Very Good)

The Food Standards Agency works closely with Local Authorities enforcement officers to ensure that food and feed law is applied across the entire food chain. After a thorough inspection from the local enforcement officers, businesses offering and/or dealing with food are awarded a rating ranging from 1 to 5, 5 being the highest standard. Gravesham will only promote 4 and 5 rated businesses on their tourism website so visitors can be reassured that hygiene standards are met.

Additional information on this classification scheme is available here.
