Food safety for businesses

The Food Safety Act 1990 and regulations made under it make it an offence for anyone to sell or process food for sale which is harmful to health. They also place an obligation on businesses to ensure that their activities are carried out in a hygienic way.

Running a food business means that you have a particular responsibility in protecting the health of your customers.
