Food Business Regulations

The Food Safety and Hygiene (England) Regulations 2013 make it an offence for anyone to sell or process food for sale which is harmful to health. They also place an obligation on businesses to ensure that their activities are carried out in a hygienic way.
All food premises are required to register with the Local Authority 28 days prior to business operations taking place.
