Safer Food, Better Business

All food businesses must have a written Food Safety Management System.

The Food Standards Agency  have produced a pack called Safer Food, Better Business that helps small businesses comply with the law. Using this pack will save you having to write your own system. It is jargon free - and easy to use.

The scheme is for small caterers, and retailers who are not part of a larger chain.
If your business is in Hertfordshire or Bedfordshire, you can attend a training course for a small fee. On the course, you will be shown how to use the pack.  As the Food Standard Agency are no longer producing free packs, you will have to download a pack from their website.  It should take you less than four hours to fill in the pack initially, and about a minute to complete the daily records.

‘This is great – it’s definitely a document for all establishments – you just tailor it to yourself’  -  Restaurant Manager

‘It’s great that they’ve used lots of graphics as I have some non English-speaking people in the kitchen – I can show them this and they’ll understand’  - Café Manager

To get more information, or to book a place on a course, call the Safer Food, Better Business hotline on 0845 234 0338.
