Materials and methods:

33 restaurants in operation were evaluated, using 10 dimensions composed of 116 indicators, integrated in the Global Index of Compliance with Health Prerequisites. The assessment of compliance by dimensions was carried out using the importance-compliance matrix, identifying the existence of clusters by the combinatorial method. The relationship of results with human resources training and entity management was established.


it was evidenced high compliance with the indicators assessed (87%). Although hygienic-sanitary deficiencies were found in a high percentage of restaurants, 67% of them, require immediate attention. A moderately strong relationship was identified between the level of food safety management, the training of human resources and the form of management.


the dry storage and water supply dimensions had an adequate performance. The greatest deficiencies were associated with vector control, food processing and maintenance dimensions. The training of the staff linked to gastronomic activity is necessary and also the increase, in the private sector, of health inspections with a minimum of predefined requirements that endorse the gastronomic operation.
