Food safety

COVID 19: we are temporarily waiving the ‘paid for advice fees’ for food businesses. If you are:

  • Changing the way you provide food
  • Changing what food you provide
  • Offering takeaways for the first time
  • Commencing deliveries
  • Offering new online ordering services
  • Offering food to the elderly or vulnerable, or
  • Providing cook-chill style meals for the first time 

We can support you by helping to ensure that foods are made safely and described correctly. 

Please email for allergens, standards and labelling queries, and for food hygiene and safety matters.
