Managing food safety

Managing food safety - Safer Food, Better Business

Food hygiene regulations require you to have a written food safety management system. You must be able to show what you do to make or sell food that is safe to eat and have this written down. 

To help small businesses do this easily, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) has developed Safer Food, Better Business (SFBB) packs.

You can download full packs or replacement pages in PDF format online, or view the packs section-by-section on the FSA website. You will find packs for caterers, retailers, childminders and a supplement for residential care homes. Also available to you are information packs for Indian and Chinese cuisine.

Your food hygiene inspection

Our officers will ask to see your written food safety management system during your inspection and the quality of this will contribute to your food hygiene rating. Visit our Food hygiene inspection webpage to find out more.
