Safer Food Better Business

Food hygiene regulations require that every food business looks at how they handle food and introduce procedures to ensure the food produced is safe to eat.

 

The Food Standards Agency have developed the Safer Food Better Business packs which will help small businesses to put in place food safety management procedures and comply with the regulations.

 

Whilst there is no legal requirement to complete one of these packs, having a Safer Food Better Business pack fully completed and maintained will ensure that you are complying with the requirements of the food hygiene regulations.

 

Packs are available for different types of food businesses (retail, catering, childminders, Chinese and Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi and Sri Lankan cuisines) and can be ordered free of charge from Food Standards Agency publications on 0845 606 0667 or by email to foodstandards@ecgroup.co.uk. The packs can also be downloaded from the Food Standards Agency website

 

Once it has been completed, the Safer Food Better Business pack can be used to train new staff members on the procedures at your food business. It should also be kept at the business so that staff can consult it for guidance should something go wrong.

 

During a routine food hygiene inspection of the premises, or a visit to investigate a complaint, your Safer Food Better Business pack will be reviewed and the officer may offer advice and guidance regarding any changes or improvements which may be required.

 

Should you require any further assistance with the completion of the pack please contact the Commercial Regulation Team on 01234 718099 or ehadmin@bedford.gov.uk.
