Food business registrations and inspections
All food businesses in the area are visited on a regular basis - restaurants, cafes, supermarkets, corner shops, warehouses and manufacturers. The frequency of visits depends on the nature of the business and the condition of the premises.
These inspections are carried out without an appointment so that officers can get a true picture of what happens on a day to day basis. Officers are out and about in the area during the day, in the evenings and at weekends.
A wide range of options are available to deal with any problems found. These range from just giving advice to prosecution.
