Promoting food safety

Hawkesbury City Council is promoting food safety through new calendars that have been handed out to various food businesses in the Hawkesbury including cafes, restaurants, hotels and take away food shops as part of their routine food inspections.

Council is participating in this initiative through the Western Sydney Food Group as part of Council’s Food Regulation Partnership with the NSW Food Authority. The calendar contains comprehensive information about food safety that is informative for all management and staff. Council considered that the calendar factsheets and food safety templates would be very useful, and that the presence of such information in a food outlet would assist in promoting food safety as part of the business operation.

The calendars have been very well received and Council staff were delighted with the positive response. Council’s Food Safety CalendarEnvironmental Health Officers always aim to help local food providers to be at the top of their game and to have the best reputation for their food and premises.

Council’s Environmental Health Section provide many services to food outlets and if you want to know more, please contact Council on 4560 4444 or email council@hawkesbury,nsw.gov.au or visit Council’s website www.hawkesbury.nsw.gov.au
