Fresh support for food businesses

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has launched its Here to Help campaign along with a new and improved food business support hub.

Businesses can now find all FSA business guidance in one place, including how to set up a food business, how to achieve a good food hygiene rating, and managing allergens to keep customers safe.

The Here to Help campaign aims to encourage micro and small food business owners to learn more about food regulations and get the support they need to follow them.

The FSA’s message is that, along with local authorities, they are there to help businesses along their journey, with lots of advice and guidance available.
