Bury and the surrounding areas are home to several Greggs bakeries, but how do they fare when it comes to food hygiene?

The bakery is a popular choice for many, offering a variety of baked goods, sandwiches, hot food and coffee.

Particularly popular are the bakery’s sausage rolls – both vegan and sausage – and their pizzas.

Inspectors look at a few different key elements when assessing the hygiene of a restaurant including: 

How hygienically the food is handled- such as how its prepared, cooked, re-heated, cooled, and stored.

The condition of the structure of the buildings – the cleanliness, layout, lighting, ventilation, and other facilities.

How the business manages what it does to make sure food is safe and so that the officer can be confident standards will be maintained in the future.

The appeal of Greggs cannot be disputed, but how well do they rate following inspections?
