Food Grading Search

​​​​​​​​​​​​​We've introduced a grading system for food premises so that you can make a more informed decision when choosing a restaurant or buying food.

Shops, restaurants and cafés throughout the Wha​nganui District are graded from 'A' to 'E' on their standards of cleanliness, food handling and staff training in food safety. An 'A' grade reflects a very low food safety risk at the time of inspection and an 'E' grade identifies serious risks.

The grades are based on the conditions and practices observed on the day of the inspection. They will be clearly marked on registration certificates that must be prominently displayed in all food premises.

Some food premises have a food safety programme in place approved by the New Zealand Food Safety Authority (NZFSA). These premises are exempt from being graded by Whanganui District Council and are subject to regular audits by the NZFSA.​
