Food business inspections

If you run a business that makes or prepares food the council will carry out regular checks on your food business to help you comply with the food hygiene law, to ensure the public is protected and that high standards are maintained.


Following the latest government and Food Standards Agency advice on social distancing, our food safety officers are not currently conducting routine food hygiene inspections in the usual way, to safeguard the businesses and our staff.  Our inspections are now resuming but we are working to support businesses by collecting as much information from them as we can from a distance, so that our visits are quicker and we can spend time supporting on Covid controls as well as hygiene.

The lockdown means our programme is delayed. Some food business operations have chosen to delay their re-opening.
