Food safety rating stars will be a permanent fixture at participating restaurants, pubs and cafes across the state as from Monday, 18 April 2016.
And the City of West Torrens is one of 17 councils taking part in the Food Safety Rating Scheme.
SA Health Director Food and Controlled Drugs Fay Jenkins said a quarter of South Australian councils will officially participate in the Scheme, giving diners more information than before about food safety.
"As the star ratings become more recognisable and consumers demand more information about the safety and hygiene of food premises we expect the number of participating councils to grow," Dr Jenkins said.
"Since the scheme started as a pilot in 2014, more than 1,200 businesses have received a star rating and we expect this to increase to more than 2,700 businesses by the end of 2016.
"By taking part in the Food Safety Rating Scheme, councils and businesses are helping to improve standards in the food service industry and reduce the risk of food poisoning."
The voluntary Food Safety Rating Scheme involves participating food premises undergoing an inspection by City of West Torrens' Environmental Health Officers.
Following the inspection, Council will award the business a rating of three, four or five stars depending on their level of compliance with the food safety standards in the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code.
A business that achieves five stars will have done an excellent job; four stars indicates very good compliance and three stars is a good result. Those that receive less than three stars will work with Council officers to improve their food safety compliance.
"We encourage all businesses who participate in the scheme to display their star rating but its not compulsory for them to do so," Dr Jenkins said.
