Health and safety - food

Our food safety team aims to ensure all food served and sold is safe to eat. Below, you'll find information on how to register your food business and information inspections.

We assess all food businesses using a priority rating system which determines the frequency of inspection. All high risk premises are regularly inspected. Low risk premises are subject to an alternative enforcement strategy.

New food businesses

If you intend to start a new business, please contact us on 01786 404040 or e-mail us to arrange an inspection.
