Overview of Safe Food Program

We work with local food businesses and community groups of every type who produce food for sale, to ensure compliance with current food legislation.


What do we do?

  • Carry out unannounced food hygiene assessments of all food businesses on a regular basis.
  • Collect evidence of breaches of the food legislation and instigate legal action where necessary.
  • We sample locally produced foods and compare results to National Standards.
  • Investigate complaints about food and food handling practices.
  • Provide Safe Food Handler Training Sessions for food handlers - these sessions provide a refresher in the basics of essential food hygiene skills and knowledge.
  • We provide support to local food businesses implementing the Australian Institute of Environmental Health FoodSafe Food Handler Training Program, 2nd Ed.
  • We distribute a quarterly Whats Eating You newsletters to food businesses.
