There are plans for a new food safety law in Jersey.

Islanders are invited to have their say on the proposals which aim to ensure there is better health and safety in the preparation, service and distribution of food.

Officers from Environmental health hope it will give better public protection against the businesses who have poor food practices.

The draft Food Safety Law will replace the Food Safety Law 1966.

Businesses can attend briefings to get a better understanding of the changes which are likely to take place in the industry.

This revised legislation will further protect the public against the adverse effects of poor practices within the various industries who deal with food, and the consultation events will offer a chance for the industry to engage with these new measures and speak with officers from Environmental Health about the changes.

– Caroline Maffia, Assistant Director of Environmental Health

Checks will continue on businesses to make sure they are complying with the law.
