Are you ready for the upcoming changes in food safety requirements for Food Handlers? Time is running out!

In accordance with the latest updates to the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code, all new food safety regulations must be implemented by December 8, 2023.

These crucial changes directly affect Food Handlers in establishments such as restaurants, caf├ęs, pubs, and hotels. As of Friday, December 8, 2023, it becomes your business's responsibility to ensure that all Food Handlers are not only trained but also possess essential skills and knowledge in food safety and hygiene.

Important Notice: Food Handler training is not the same as Food Safety Supervisor training.

Who is a Food Handler?
In simple terms, it's anyone in your food business who handles food or surfaces likely to come into contact with food, including cutlery and plates. Food Handlers may engage in food preparation, production, cooking, display, packing, storage, or service.

Fulfil Your Obligations
To meet these new regulations, businesses must ensure their Food Handlers receive training that covers these vital areas:

  • Safe handling of food
  • Understanding of food contamination
  • Cleaning and sanitising of food premises and equipment
