Food Safe System
Can a business operate legally without a food safety system?2020-01-19T13:20:32+00:00

No, it is illegal to not have a food safety system. Since 2006 it has been a requirement of UK and EU law that every food business has a pre-determined food safety system based on the principles of HACCP.

If you do not have a food safety system you may be prosecuted, served an improvement order, fined and even shut down.


How do I know if my Local Authority is using the Hygiene Rating Scheme?2017-06-16T18:20:05+00:00
