The Food and Safety Team work to maintain satisfactory standards of food safety and hygiene in all the food businesses in the Borough. All food premises must comply with current food hygiene regulations.
Officers regularly inspect all food businesses at a frequency which is determined by the risk, and advice is given on how to comply with the law. If necessary, legal action, in line with our enforcement policy can be taken against businesses when serious food hygiene problems are discovered.
Information on food safety issues is available on The Food Standards Agency website.
We can support and give advice for new businesses.
