How unhygienic does a food outlet need to be to get a zero-star rating?

How are food outlets judged on hygiene?

Businesses that serve food are judged on three criteria:

How hygienically the food is handled – how it is 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 and records what it does to make sure food is safe
