Food safety management

If you run a food business you must have a documented food safety management system. In other words, you need to say how you make safe food and have this written down. The amount of documentation you need is related to the type of food you prepare or handle and the risks presented by your business.

A lot of consideration has been given to help smaller food businesses comply with food regulations without introducing an unnecessary burden. The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has developed Safer Food Better Business (SFBB).

MyHACCP for small food manufacturing businesses

MyHACCP is an online tool aimed at small food manufacturing businesses in the UK, although businesses in other food sectors may find it useful.

It can be used to guide businesses through the process of identifying food safety hazards and controls and the production of a documented food safety management system based on HACCP principles.
