The trend to outsource hospital, hotel, school and many other catering services, and the globalised nature of food production, processing, distribution and preparation demands the careful use of food safety risk management. Health and aged care services must comply with food safety laws, local council regulations, and local and EU standards. The organisation-specific requirements of these are addressed in policies and procedures and accreditation requirements.
In UK thesStandards and Guidelines are developed and enforced by the Food Standards Agency. In Ireland, the Food Safety Standards were developed to provide uniform food safety legislation.
