Food safety is an important part of everyday life, and the proper preparation and storage of food is key to staying safe. It is estimated that 5.4 million Australians each year contract a food borne illness. However, through the implementation of good hygiene and safe food handling practices, the impact and spread of these ilnesses is preventable.
SA Health is a great source of information and guidance regarding food safety and general wellbeing. More information can be found about safe practices and procedures for food on their website.
Food Labeling Requirements
Food labelling informs the consumer of the properties of food offered for sale. SA Health has produced a Guide to the Labelling of Packaged Food for Retail Sale which explains food labelling requirements, and is available online for viewing.
