Food Safety - Safer Food Better Business

Environmental Health

Safer food, better business is an information pack that has been developed by the Food Standards Agency (FSA) to help food businesses comply with current food regulations. These regulations state that you must be able to show what you do to make food that is safe to eat and have this written down.

Using the pack in your business will help you to:

  • comply with the new regulations
  • show what you do to make food safely
  • train staff
  • protect your business's reputation
