Food safety seminars for local business

Published on 13 May 2021


Retail food businesses on the MidCoast are invited to a free food safety seminar which will better equip them to meet food hygiene standards and comply with NSW legislation.

“The seminars provide practical advice on how best to meet safety legislation in your retail food business,” said MidCoast Council’s Manager Building and Environmental Health Services, Gary Mead.

“The free seminar aims to inform food businesses and food handlers of their responsibilities in preparing and handling safe food for sale.

“You’ll also walk away with tips and suggestions on how your business can improve its food safety outcomes.”

NSW food businesses are required to ensure that all food handlers have skills and knowledge to ensure they undertake safe food handling for sale to customers.

Attending a Food Safety Seminar is one way retailers and their employees can gain knowledge, awareness and practical skills in ensuring they are complying with the legislation.

The free seminar is at MidCoast Council’s Yalawanyi Ganya building, 2 Biripi Way Taree, on Thursday 27 May from 2pm – 5pm, with light refreshments provided.
