Future of Food Safety

Do you own or work in a business within the food service sector or retailer of ready to eat foods?

Food regulators have commenced discussions with the food service and related retail sectors regarding proposed changes to food laws to improve food safety standards. The sectors identified are-

General food service sector

  • on and off-site catering
  • eating establishments.

Closely related retail sectors

Retailers of ready-to-eat:

  • potentially hazardous bakery products (including processors)
  • delicatessen products
  • processed seafood products
  • perishable packaged foods (e.g. sandwiches).

Food businesses owners should get on the front foot and start planning for these changes NOW. Further information can be obtained from Andrew Thomson on 0422285720.
