Business Advice: Food Safety and Standards Compliance

Why have we introduced charges?

In common with local authorities across the UK, we continue to face reductions in Government funding and as a consequence we are faced with difficult budget decisions.

The vast majority of functions performed by our Food Safety and Standards Team are statutory requirements and are delivered in accordance with statutory guidance. 

However, provision of advisory visits, and related consultancy-type activities, exceed what we are required to do, and unfortunately are no longer sustainable as a free service.
