Food safety regulations

Food safety legislation places an obligation on food business operators to ensure that all their activities are carried out in a hygienic way. It makes it an offence to supply food which is unsafe or harmful to human health.

The food safety team is responsible for ensuring that businesses comply with these requirements under legislation such as the Food Safety Act 1990 and the Food Safety and Hygiene (England) Regulations 2013.
