Legislation in Managing Food Safety

There is food safety legislation from the ‘Farm to Fork’ e.g. Food Safety Act 1990 and Regulation (EC) No 852/2004. This law states that every person working within the industry has a legal, commercial and moral obligation to provide safe food.

These food laws are a complex subject and most acts and regulations affecting the food industry are difficult to interpret, however, ignorance of the law is no defence in the event of a prosecution.

Proprietors, managers and supervisors must therefore become conversant with legislation which affects their work. At The Academy, we aim to assist food businesses in complying with these regulations, ensuring that a commitment to food safety is upheld and that consumers and businesses are protected.
