Where can I get food safety advice?

If you are a food establishment, you will need to ensure you meet the current food safety requirements.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) is the best place to get this advice.

Go to the FSA website

The FSA's  Safer Food, Better Business guide is particularly useful in helping you to meet the food safety requirements.

You can also contact our Food Hygiene team .
