The implementation of a food safety program is compulsory for food businesses producing food for vulnerable people. This includes childcare centres and aged care facilities.

A food safety program is a written set of procedures and documentation that effectively demonstrates to an external body or auditor that processes have been complied with to ensure safe food is produced and served at all times.

The development of a food safety program is based on identifying where a potential food contamination or hazard could occur and developing a process that will ensure likely hazards are identified and prevented.

If you require further advice or information relating to food safety programs please contact the City on 9397 3000.
