Safer Food, Better Business Management Packs

Safer food, better business (SFBB) management packs are to help small businesses with food safety management procedures and food hygiene regulations.

Your business can keep and complete records on a computer, or print them out for filling in.  Please be aware that not having a food safety management procedure/diary records in place will have a negative impact on your food safety rating.

Pick the pack relevant to your business i.e. caterers, retailers, childminders, care homes, takeaways from the Food Standards Agency (FSA) website    

Using the diary

There are two options to how you use the diary:

Electronically: Download the diary pages onto your device, fill them in and store them electronically.

Paper copies: Print out the diary and fill it in. There is also a diary refill you can use when you need more pages.

You should store all your completed diary pages safely - electronically or on paper - until your next visit from a local authority food safety officer. They may want to look at your diary pages as well as your SFBB Caterers pack.
