Food Safety

As well as regular assessments of food premises, Council is involved in food recalls, investigation of food related complaints, food poisoning occurrences, provision of information and food premises notification requirements.

A food business, regardless of whether it is commercial or charitable, must notify Council of their existence. Also, any change of key personnel, address, telephone number, common or business name, or operating method, must be updated immediately. Notification or changes to an existing notification can be done on line at OR by completing the attached form (below) and sending it direct to Council and to be received at Council PRIOR to trading.
