Food safety inspections

Food safety inspections of businesses in the district are carried out on a regular basis. While the focus of these inspections is to make sure businesses comply with food safety law, we always try to work with and support businesses wherever possible. We will however always take appropriate legal action if serious breaches of food safety law are found and public safety is put at risk.

If you have experienced a food safety problem or have come across unsafe practices in a food business within the district, then you can submit a complaint to us.

We will investigate complaints about food where there is a serious risk of ill health or injury. Please see our guidance document about some common food complaints which do not cause a serious risk of ill health or injury and advice on the best course of action to take.

To make a complaint, please see our complaints page (opens in a new window).
