Safer Food Better Business

If you run a small catering or general food retail business, then Safer Food, Better Business (SFBB) may be for you.

Safer Food, Better Business is a food safety management system developed with and for small food businesses by the Food Standards Agency.  Where relevant the majority of food businesses in South Somerset use it.   Businesses have found the system an easy but highly relevant way of keeping on top of food safety, without excessive paperwork.  Our inspectors have also found that businesses using this approach achieve higher standards of hygiene. 

The system is available to download and print free of charge below or from the Food Standards Agency.  It consists of lots of information on safe methods to use, plus a daily diary for your records.  Diary sheets are available to download and print for free below or from the Food Standards Agency.

An online Safer Food, Better Business guide  in 16 languages is also available from the Food Standards Agency and can be downloaded to your computer.
