Food Safety and Standards

We want to make sure that food manufactured or sold in the city is safe to eat and prepared by suitably trained people.

We will also give advice if you own or are considering setting up a food business and are looking for advice on food safety or food safety training.

Contact us straight away if you have any concerns about the conditions or practices at a food business that you have visited, the safety of food you have bought or eaten, or in connection with food standards.
