Food Hygiene FAQs

  • Do food hygiene certificates expire?

    While food hygiene certificates do not have an expiry date, it is recommended that you renew it every three years.

  • Why is food hygiene important?

    If food is not prepared in a hygienic way, it may be unsafe for consumption and could increase the risk of foodborne illnesses. Good food hygiene is important for your business and its reputation, as well as the health of your customers. It's therefore vital to ensure all staff have received food hygiene training.

  • What is the Food Safety Act?

    The Food Safety Act 1990 is the legal framework for all food legislation in Britain. It's designed to ensure that food handlers do not add anything to food or remove anything from it, or treat it in a way that could damage a person's health after consumption. It also states that the way food is sold, served, labelled and advertised meets the quality that customers expect.

  • Who is responsible for food safety?

    Food handlers and food businesses are responsible for the safety of the food that they provide to consumers. Their responsibilities include ensuring food is safe for consumption, and that its quality meets expectations. Food also needs to be labelled and advertised in a way that is not misleading, especially where allergies and intolerances are concerned.
