Food safety

Understand everything involved in food safety standards, handler information sessions, safety programs, running stalls and how food recalls work.


Our Health Protection Unit offers free Food Handler Information Sessions for those working in a food business in Darebin.
A food recall is defined as ‘removal of an item for distribution, sale and consumption, food which may pose a health and safety risk to consumers.’
All proprietors have a duty of care to ensure the food they sell is safe. All food businesses must have a Food Safety Program in place to operate.
Food premises such as hotels, restaurants, take-away shops, stalls and food caravans must comply with food safety standards.
