Day 16: Protecting the food chain

trading standards advent image 16

How do we ensure that the food we eat is safe?

We start at the farm and follow through to the fork.

Farmers and growers must follow basic hygiene procedures.

So, for example, any livestock farms, fish farms, arable farms, Pick Your Own, market gardens or bee keepers producing food for human consumption must be registered and must follow basic hygiene procedures. As food businesses, they will have to ensure that any hazards are controlled appropriately. Under the food hygiene rules, steps need to be taken to:

Prevent contamination arising from the air, water, soil, feed, veterinary products, fertilisers, pesticides, waste, etc.

Records relevant to food safety must also be kept. Good records help protect people in the event of an animal feed or related human food-safety incident and are essential in order to quickly trace the origins of any problem.
