A Polish supermarket in High Wycombe has been rated one-out-of-five stars for its food hygiene practices for the second time in a row.

Grosik Supermarket on Castle Street was given a one-out-of-five food hygiene rating by the government-run Food Standards Agency on February 22.

It was previously given the same rating – which indicates that major improvements are necessary – on March 22, 2023.

During its most recent inspection, the FSA found that major improvement was necessary to the supermarket’s management of food safety.

It means the systems or checks in place to ensure that the food being sold is safe need to be “majorly” worked on – and also indicated that the inspector did not have confidence that safety standards would be maintained in the future.

Improvement was also deemed to be necessary for both the cleanliness and condition of the facilities and the building and for hygienic food handling.
