Look behind the restaurant menu

Following a trial in commercial catering establishments in Paris and Avignon, from 3rd April 2017 hygiene checks carried out in the food sector will be published online on the site

This will cover restaurants, canteens, abattoirs, supermarkets, markets and other food outlets and the data will be available online for a period of one year from the date of the last inspection.
The website will have an interactive map of France allowing you to search for a particular establishment by name or address. It will also be possible to filter the results by category of establishment or to browse the map.
The result will show:
• the name and address of the business, • the date of the last inspection, • the level of hygiene with 4 levels: "very satisfactory", "satisfactory", "to improve", "to be corrected urgently". In the latter case the authority may order the closure of the premises pending corrective action.
