It is a legal requirement to have a documented food safety management system in place. One way to meet this requirement is using the safer food, better business (SFBB) pack.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) is no longer providing us with copies of the SFBB pack or the diary refill packs. However, there are several ways of obtaining the pack to ensure that you are still complying with the food safety legislation.

You can download the pack or print your own diary pages [] from the Food Standards Agency website. You can also photocopy your own diary pages to make sure you don’t run out.
