Food standards

Fsa logo.

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 use the Food Standards Agency's report a food problem page.

The facility is particularly targeted at those working in or around the UK food industry.

The Food Safety team aim to ensure that:

  • Food businesses are registered.
  • Restaurants and other food premises meet strict hygiene standards.
  • Food is safe to eat.
