'Safer Food, Better Business'
A risk assessment asks you to think logically about what might go wrong with the food that you make / sell and what you must do to ensure it is safe for your customers.
Why do a risk assessment?
- it is legal requirement for all food businesses
- if your business is taken to court you may be able to demonstrate that you exercised diligence through arrangements in place to prevent an offence being committed
- it helps ensure food is safe for customers to eat
For more information visit Food Standards Agency.
Where to get help
All food businesses must have a written Food Safety Management System.
The Food Standards Agency has developed a free pack called 'Safer Food, Better Business' (SFBB) to help you comply with the law. Using this pack will save you having to come up with your own system.
