National food delivery service Just Eat has revealed plans to ban firms with a zero hygiene rating from its platform as it launches a crackdown on dodgy food.
It comes after a BBC investigation found half of outlets rated zero by the Food Standards Agency in Manchester, Bristol and London appeared on the app.
Any new eatery attempting to join Just Eat will also have to be rated at least ‘generally satisfactory’ - a three on the five point scale for hygiene.
According to the Food Standards Agency, there are a smattering of Exmouth eateries with a one-point rating or two-point rating still operating on Just Eat.
Two eateries with a one point rating – ‘major improvement necessary’ still have food delivered to people’s doors in Exmouth.
