Food Standards Agency checklist for UK food businesses

Food Standards Agency checklist for UK food businesses

Reopening your food business after a period of closure will require some extra checks alongside your ‘normal’ daily opening checks. These will help to make sure that your business can restart safely. You will need to maintain your basic hygiene standards and recognise the areas where greater attention will be required.

A review of your Food Safety Management System should be undertaken to identify risks. This should be recorded in your Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) plan, or your Safer food, better business pack.

Completing this reopening checklist here will allow you to record progress when restarting your food business. This checklist is also available for download in table format (Opens in a new window).

The checklist includes:

– Business Activities
– Safety management and waste
– Food areas and surfaces
– Hand washing and cleanliness
– Equipment
– Raw materials
– Allergen information
