Responsible drinks retailing and marketing
We aim to improve the quality of our food continually and provide customers with information about our product range to help them to make informed decisions about their food consumption.
Health, nutrition and allergens
Full allergen/nutritional information can be found on our website, on the Wetherspoon app and on customer information screens in all pubs. Customers can ask at the bar, where staff will be able to direct them to this information.
We support practices which promote sensible drinking and have established a ‘code of conduct for responsible retailing’, outlining our approach in this area.
We also seek to develop partnerships with local authorities and the police. All pubs are requested to become a local pubwatch scheme member (promoting a safe and responsible drinking environment). In several locations, a company pub manager chairs the scheme and, where there is no pubwatch, we work with the local police and council to try to establish one.
The company applies proof-of-age policies to those playing gaming machines, to ensure that they are not played by customers aged under 18 years.
Responsible gambling messages are displayed on digital gaming machines, along with support organisations’ information about gambling issues.
Food safety and health and safety
As at June 2022, 778 of our pubs have a Food Hygiene Rating Scheme (FHRS) rating, with 98.34% of those achieving the highest-possible rating of five.
Scotland operates the Food Hygiene Information Scheme (FHIS). This scheme has a ‘pass’/‘fail’ rating – with 65 pubs in Scotland gaining a ‘pass’ score – a 100% success rate.
The ratings for both FHRS and FHIS follow an independent assessment of food hygiene at premises, determined by local authority environmental health officers visiting outlets to assess hygiene levels.
Every pub receives at least five quality-assurance visits each month from a combination of its area manager, the audit department, an external ‘mystery shopper’ company and other head-office managers. The scores from these visits are combined and form part of the bonus scheme for all pub-based employees.
Responsible product-sourcing and product quality
We have a fully traceable supply chain, with all of the company’s food suppliers enjoying a globally recognised food-production standard, eg accreditation by the British Retail Consortium.
Farming standards, animal-sourcing and welfare
Wetherspoon believes that it has a responsibility to conduct its business responsibly and ethically; this extends to the sourcing of food products. Our food-sourcing policy refers to all of our products and ingredients containing meat, seafood, dairy and/or egg products.
