Safe Food Australia - A guide to the Food Safety Standards

(November 2016)

Safe Food Australia is a guide to the three mandatory food safety standards: 
  • Standard 3.1.1 Interpretation and Application
  • Standard 3.2.2 Food Safety Practices and General Requirements, and
  • Standard 3.2.3 Food Premises and Equipment.
It is primarily aimed at government agencies responsible for enforcing the standards. Food businesses may also find it offers helpful information about the standards and food safety issues.
FSANZ reviewed Safe Food Australia to ensure it addresses current food safety issues and trends, contains up-to-date evidence and references and provides information targeted for temporary and mobile vendors and for home-based businesses.
