Food Hygiene Guidlines
The purpose of this Guide is to offer practical tips to achieve good hygiene standards and practices, and to provide a general overview of legislative requirements such as:
The Food Safety Act 1990 which is the main legislation governing Food Safety and Hygiene in the UK. The Food Safety Act 1990 states that: You must not sell (or keep for sale) food that is ‘unfit’ for people to eat, and that you must not cause food to be dangerous to health or you must not sell food that is not what the customer is entitled to expect, in terms of content or quality, and finally that you must not describe or present food in a way that is false or misleading. This guide will give you a good understanding of what the Act requires and guidelines on how to comply with the 1990 Act, and ensure the highest food hygiene standards in your restaurant.
