Food Safety Homepage

Food is a basic commodity which we all require. People may have experienced problems with the food which they have purchased either in a shop or restaurant. The Council's Food Safety Team is here to advise consumers and businesses. It is their aim to ensure that the food purchased by consumers in the Stratford-on-Avon District is safe to eat.

The details held in this database of services provide the public and businesses with advice, legislative requirements and information including the work undertaken by the Food Team to protect the District.

For more information about this topic and for further details of the various pieces of legislation that govern our work, please use the link below or on the right:

Food Safety Act 1990

The Food Safety Team is available to deal with telephone queries during normal office hours. Emergencies outside normal hours are dealt with by the Council's out of hours emergency service.

Food Safety in the Home

Many cases of food poisoning are contracted in the home. Lack of handwashing, cross contamination and failure to check if food is cooked properly are all common causes. For advice on Food Saftey in the Home please see our webpage.

Food Business Inspections

If you are a food business trading in Stratford on Avon District, you will no doubt recieve food inspection visits from our Environmental Health Officers and Food Safety Officers. But don't be afraid! Our officers are friendly and much prefer to educate than to punish. It is their aim that businesses are safe, and through this great business reputations are made. They can help your business and are always happy to give advice. See the Food Standards Agency webpage on Food law inspections and your business for more information on what to expect when an officer visits.
