Food glorious food! Council to host Food Regulation Forum

The Bega Valley will host the NSW Food Regulation Partnership Forum’s Annual Regional Meeting on Thursday 31 July 2014.

Council’s Environmental Health Coordinator Greg O’Donnell said the forum would enable food businesses in the South East to keep informed about food safety standards and regulations.

“It is important that food businesses are kept up to date on the standards and regulations with which they must comply,” he said.

“This meeting is one of the ways in which the NSW Food Authority and Council offers businesses the opportunity to ask questions about the food laws and other programs such as Scores on Doors and Food Safety Supervisors.
