Customers to ‘boycott businesses with poor hygiene reputation’

Almost two-thirds of British people (65.1 per cent) will boycott restaurants, bars, pubs or hotels with a poor reputation for hygiene and infection control. This comes as many businesses prepare to open their doors following the latest national lockdown measures.

That’s according to research conducted by infection control specialist JLA, which also revealed that 87.6 per cent of people deem it important that a business does have a good reputation for infection control and hygiene. More than one in three (34 per cent) would never use offending businesses again, and they would also tell as many people as possible – via word of mouth and social media.

A further 33.6 per cent of the public admitted they are less likely to use a business with a poor reputation for infection control, with only 6.3 per cent of the population stating hygiene and infection control ratings are still not an issue for them.
