Food Business Compliance in Victoria - Victoria


Food safety laws affect every Victorian's health and safety. Under the Food Act 1984, all food business owners (and community groups who sell food) are legally responsible to ensure that food sold or prepared for sale is safe to eat.

 All staff in the business who handle and prepare food for sale to consumers are responsible for food safety. Please also take the time to familiarise yourself with the relevant information and free guidance materials on this website.

Please consult the responsible agency for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance (if any) that may be required.
