Safe food handling

Council is responsible for the regulation of food businesses within the Shoalhaven City local government area.

Our food safety program aims to minimise handling of food for sale risks by ensuring compliance with relevant legislation.

There is a growing culture of dining out in the Shoalhaven as well as a diverse range of food businesses, so Council’s role in endorsing regulation of food handling continues to evolve.

Council’s role

Council’s role in upholding food safety is designed to educate the food handler by encouraging good food safety practices.

Such education minimises the risk associated with food poisoning, ensures customer confidence and ultimately results in a boost to trade for the food business.

Council’s Environmental Health Team are available to offer professional advice and instruction on food safety matters to proprietors of food businesses, food handlers and the general public.
