Hygiene ratings are set to be displayed on the doors of hundreds of Birmingham's cafes and restaurants.
Nearly 4,000 of the city's food businesses will be able to display their food safety rating so customers can see how clean their premises are. The city council has already put restaurants' safety ratings on to its 'Scores on the Doors' website.
But now customers will be able to check that a restaurant is clean as they walk in off the street.
Councillor Neil Eustace said: "We want to be transparent about standards so consumers can take this information on board when choosing where to eat out or buy a sandwich, and of course not everyone has access to the internet.
"It should also help to drive up standards as customers will start to ask why some places don't have a score on their door - the scheme is voluntary so only those with good hygiene scores will want to take part."
