Food Safety Regulations
An estimated five million people suffer from food poisoning in England and Wales each year. Running a food business means that you have a particular responsibility in protecting the health of your customers.
Food Safety Act
The Food Safety Act 1990 made it an offence for anyone to sell or process food for sale which is harmful to health. It also placed an obligation on businesses to ensure that their activities are carried out in a hygienic way.
