Food Safety Service Plan


This Service Plan has been produced in response to the Food Standard Agency's framework agreement on food law enforcement. It tells you how we will protect and promote food safety throughout the district by a combination of measures which include enforcing food safety law, sampling of foods and liaising with other organisations. It links with the Environmental Health Unit Service Plan and outlines the priorities, targets, resources and performance on food safety.

The plan should help in service management, performance planning as well as assisting in comparing performance against other local authorities. It should be evident that the mix of enforcement includes aspects that are demand driven, inspection driven, education driven and intelligence driven.

The Food Standards Agency's Food Law Code of Practice allows a number of different interventions to be used instead of inspections. This allows a risk based approach to be taken. To help achieve consistency a Cumbria wide food safety intervention strategy has been agreed and can be downloaded below.
