Star rating information
Businesses receive a food safety star rating at the end of a food safety audit conducted by an authorised Brisbane City Council officer. A food business can receive one of the following star ratings:
|Stars||Level of compliance with the Food Act 2006|
|5 stars - excellent performer, fully compliant with the Food Act 2006 and overall very high standard of food safety management practices|
|4 stars - very good performer, high standard of compliance with the Food Act 2006 and overall good standard of food safety management practices|
|3 stars - good performer, good level of compliance with the Food Act 2006 and overall acceptable standard of food safety management practices|
|2 stars - poor performer, low level of compliance with the Food Act 2006 with more effort required|
|No stars - non compliant performer, a general failure to comply with the Food Act 2006 with major effort required to rectify issues|
Only businesses that receive three or more stars can choose to publicly display their star rating. There are a number of reasons why a food business may not display a star rating.
One star rating
In order to communicate food safety rating information, Council chose to make the no star rating the only non-compliant rating. Therefore, there is no one star rating. The next rating, two stars, indicates a low level of compliance, and the remaining ratings (three, four and five stars) indicate high and full levels of compliance.
