We enforce several standards that relate to food.
Trading Standards aim to ensure that:
- Food is correctly labelled and described and meets quality standards.
- Manufacturers and retailers of food are regularly inspected
The Food Standards Agency (FSA)
is an independent food safety watchdog set up by Government to protect the public's health and consumer interests in relation to food. Visit the Food Standards Agency website
for the latest food alerts, including product withdrawal and recall information.
The FSA's National Food Crime Unit also deals with reports from anyone with suspicions about food crime. Food crime involves dishonesty at any stage in the production or supply of food.
To report suspicions in confidence - Call 0207 276 8787 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

The Food Safety team aim to ensure that:
