A convenience store’s hygiene rating has been upgraded after the owners spent thousands of pounds refurbishing the shop.

Day 1, based along St Albans Road has been upgraded from a zero hygiene rating to a three following a recent inspection.

Shazia Praveer, owner, said: "We did refurbishment work. We got new lights, new toilets, new equipment and cleaned it properly.

"You know when you clean something really good, bleaching it and cleaning it right at the back, that is what we did."

"We also installed new tiles. We have just made it more hygienic and clean."

The owner, who took over the Watford-based shop in November added: "I went on a food hygiene course because it is a new business and I wanted to make myself aware of how to handle the food and inform the staff on how to handle it hygienically.

"It is all about hygiene."

Day 1 was rated as 0 by the Food Standards Agency in October 2012.

Personally i think it's a good advert, i love it when they disguise ads as a worthy news page.
The 5 star places deserve the publicity more!

"Cleaned it properly" Is there any other way to clean?

"upgraded from a zero hygiene rating to a three following a recent inspection".........
.. What would have happened to the hygiene rating if there had been NO inspection?

I dont think this free advert for their shop has done them any favours i'm afraid, it is worrying that someone takes on a food shop having not already done hygience courses etc and yes their assertion that is has now been 'properly' cleaned sends a shiver down the spine of how it must have been previously.

If there isnt already maybe there should be a statutory rule that the owner/managers of such establishments must have passed certain courses before being allowed to take over?
