Food businesses are invited to participate in a joint Australia and New Zealand food regulation system consultation on future options to improve food safety outcomes in the ‘food service and closely related retail sectors’. These sectors include caterers (on and off site), takeaway stores, restaurants, cafes, and retailers who sell bakery products, seafood, delicatessen products and perishable, ready-to-eat packaged foods.
The consultation looks at current food safety measures in the ACT for food service and closely related retail sectors, how they work and what can be implemented nationally to improve food safety outcomes and protect the community.
This is your opportunity to comment on potential future regulatory and non-regulatory options to improve food safety outcomes for the food service and closely related retail sectors.
The consultation will run from Monday 6 March 2017 until midnight 26 March 2017.
