Whether you are a food processor, caterer, distributor, or working in the food industry in warehousing, retail, food service, or hospitality there is a vast array of legal requirements which impact on your food business.
Every food business operator (FBO) can expect to be regularly visited by the local enforcement officers from their district and county council, either to carry out a full audit/ inspection; to investigate a complaint or to receive advice on best practise.
The results of such visits can leave the FBO with a number of dilemmas:
- Is the business compliant?
- What do I have to do nextversus what is a longer term goal?
- Do I have to place allergens labelling on my food labelling/menu?
- Can I appeal against the notice served?
- Can I appeal against my “scores on the doors rating”?
