These Safer Food, Better Business catering packs help caterers and retailers with food safety management



This is important to make sure that your food is safe to eat. Food Safety legislation requires you to write down in simple terms what you do and what records you will keep to make sure that your food is safe to eat.

The most widely used toolkit for caterers and retailers is the Food Standards Agency’s Safer Food, Better Business.

You can download diaries, factsheet and information on promoting good hygiene from the Food Standards Agency Safer Food, Better Business website.
