In 2009 we received 18 months funding from the Food Standards Agency, FSA. This project aimed to assist businesses across London to implement Safer food, better business (SFBB) and increase compliance with the legal requirement for documented food safety management procedures based on HACCP principles.
The project targeted over 2200 premises with poor hygiene standards and low levels of food safety compliance with the aim of improving food standards for both residents and future visitors to the Olympic, event and interested boroughs. The interventions provided added capacity to support local authorities in ensuring that all food premises are compliant in readiness for the Olympics. Improving business food safety management systems will improve food hygiene standards, which in turn, leads towards a positive impact on public health with the anticipated reduction in the likelihood of food poisoning outbreaks.
