Annual food inspections

Our Council's food inspectors regulate businesses through mandatory annual inspections and follow-up inspections for poorly performing businesses and targeted inspections for specific business sectors. Fees are charged for these inspections.

The Food Inspection Program aims to ensure retail food businesses understand and meet the requirements expected of them. It also helps Council assess if businesses have the skills and knowledge to manage risk.

Food inspectors assess the premises, its equipment and facilities to ensure they are appropriate and are in a fit condition to carry out the activities required and maintain necessary hygiene and food safety standards.

Our Council's food inspectors also train, educate, monitor, support the development of control systems and issue notices and fines. We work closely with the NSW Food Authority to inform the community of businesses that have been fined by publicising their details on the Offences (name and shame) register.
