Food safety management procedures

It is a legal requirement for all food businesses to have food safety management procedures - based on the principles of HACCP (hazard analysis and critical control points).  If you run a food business you must keep records relating to these procedures.

To help small businesses meet these requirements the Food Standards Agency has a pack called Safer Food Better Business.  It is jargon-free and easy to use.  Once the 'safe methods' fact sheets have been completed, it only takes one minute a day to complete.

You can order a Safer Food Better Business pack directly from the Food Standards Agency on 0845 606 0667 or download it from the Food Standards Agency website.  This link will take you to an external website...

To help businesses keep records to demonstrate compliance with their procedures we have produced record sheets (see downloads section of this page).
