Food Safety

Food hygiene has become a cause of great public concern and interest in recent years with major food issues such as E-COLI 0157, BSE and Salmonella making headline news. Our food safety inspectors are addressing these food issues locally and are working to improve food safety and hygiene standards across the district.
