Food safety inspections | Food safety inspections | Medway Council

We have a duty under the Food Safety Act 1990 to make sure all food offered to the public is safe to eat and properly described.  

Our main role is to help people to produce safe food. Our environmental health officers check on food safety, hygiene, composition and labelling.

Inspections

We carry out routine inspections and may also visit if we have received a complaint about your business.

We inspect any stage of the production, manufacturing, distribution, and retail sale of food. We give advice and guidance to the public about food hygiene and the investigation of outbreaks of food poisoning and notifiable diseases.
