Details

This map, chart and accompanying data show the variation in density of fast food outlets in local authorities across England, ranging from 26 to 232 per 100,000 population.

There is strong evidence linking the density of fast food outlets to the level of area deprivation, and the data shows higher concentrations of fast food outlets in England’s most deprived communities.

This resource has been produced using the Food Standards Agency (FSA) Food Hygiene Rating Scheme (FHRS) dataset to help local authorities target resources and take action towards achieving a healthier food environment.
