Food safety regulations

Last Modified May 14, 2019

It is an offence to sell or process food for sale which is harmful to health. Businesses must ensure activities are carried out in a hygienic way, which includes:

  • conditions and cleanliness within a food business
  • food handling practices
  • personal hygiene
  • training of staff
  • written food safety procedures
  • imported foods
  • and much more
    For more detailed information visit Food Standards Agency or contact us.


 Service Planning


We produce a service plan every year, detailing the aims and objectives of the food safety service and how it is run.

The service plan is produced in a format prescribed by the Food Standards Agency. It is reviewed annually to identify the Council's performance against it, any variance from it and areas for improvement in the service.
