Have Your Say: Food Safety Management Policy

Mornington Peninsula Shire Council invites the community to provide their thoughts on the draft Food Safety Management Policy 2019
The Policy aims to address the manufacture, supply and sale of safe food on the Mornington Peninsula. 
The draft Food Safety Management Policy 2019 will also:
  • Assist food businesses and community groups to serve safe, healthy food and protect customers with food allergies.
  • Provide excellent customer service to all food safety stakeholders.
  • Support the Best Bites program to promote healthy, accessible and sustainable food businesses.
Updating this Policy is part of Council’s commitment to support food businesses to serve safe and sustainable food, as set out in our Council Plan 2017-21.

Community consultation opens Wednesday 26 June 2019 and closes 5pm Friday 2 August 2019.
