We monitor and enforce the correct handling, preparation, and storage of food. This is to reduce the risk of food-related illness in our community.
Food can transmit disease from person-to-person and serve as a growth medium for bacteria. This can ultimately cause food poisoning.

Food Standards Australia New Zealand has developed information sheets on food safety standards and tips to reduce food safety risks.

Under Standard 3.2.2 Food Safety Practices, the owners of food businesses are responsible for ensuring people who handle food or food contact surfaces in their business, and the people who supervise this work, have the skills and knowledge they need to ensure food safety and hygiene. Having adequate skills and knowledge is a legal requirement. Visit the Food Standards website for further advice.
