I think you are assuming that food businesses actually register, and new 
owners register the changes, or at least there is someone in the council 
actually checks for missing food businesses.  When I looked at the local 
registrations a couple of years ago, I came to the conclusion that 
rather a lot were missing, and whilst I've not checked again recently, 
either there are a lot with scores of 0, 1, or 2, who wouldn't want to 
have their score on the windows, or there are still a lot of 
unregistered food businesses, even just counting cafes and the like, not 
all the things that quailify.
