DESSERT venue Kaspa's has received a one food hygiene rating, the second lowest result.

The rankings, which are listed on the Food Standards Agency’s website, stated that the Bridge Street venue received the second lowest result of 1 food hygiene rating.

The rating on the Food Standards Agency website stated that the Kaspa's St Helens needs to make major improvements in the management of food safety and further improvement in the areas of hygienic food handling and cleanliness of the facilities.

Commenting on the rating, Brand Leader Senior Manager Kaspas St Helens, Michael Robinson, said: "Kaspas St Helens are extremely disappointed with the current rating and all of the areas highlighted have already been rectified.

"During the recent EHO visit, standards were not at all what we expect and issues highlighted have since been addressed and we are now waiting for the revisit to confirm regaining our 5 STAR Rating (previously holding a 5 STAR Rating)

"The new area manager and store management team are fully aware and committed to turning this failure into a success and within the same week of the visit rectified issues and are now waiting for the revisit."
