Food safety advice for businesses

Food traceability

You must be able to trace all types of food back to the original manufacturer.

  • You must have documents to show where all your food items came from e.g. invoices.
  • You must keep a record of what food you have sold to other businesses, and their details.
  • Do not buy food unless you can be sure that it comes from a reliable source, and you have records so you can prove you know where it comes from.
  • Make sure any pre-packed food is labelled correctly in English.
