Working with you to make your business food-safe. Find our about our routine inspection and hand advice.
We’re working with and educating our community about safe food practices. Here are a few things you should know… plus some handy information.
If you sell or prepare food for the public – we’ll conduct a food and hygiene assessment. You must comply with the requirements of the Food Act 2008 and the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code.
Food preparation from home is limited to low-risk foods – such as cakes, biscuits and jams. You’ll need a separate facility to prepare high-risk food.
You need to demonstrate safety knowledge under the Food Act. We’ve partnered with FoodSafe® – so you can upskill for free (normally $35).
