Food Safety Information for Operators of Food Businesses

The food sector is an important part of our economy, feeding local residents and tourists visiting Leeds, Grenville and Lanark Counties. Food businesses include restaurants, food retail stores, bakeries, caterers, etc. Some businesses have grown from their rural roots as farm based businesses and now produce value added products, many of which are shipped outside of our area. The health unit works with many of these food businesses and other regulatory agencies thru consultation, inspection, education and enforcement of regulatory requirements to ensure the food offered for sale to the public has been prepared safely under sanitary conditions, by well-informed food handlers. Operating a food premises may require approvals, permits, and licenses from other municipal departments and provincial and/or federal agencies. It is your responsibility to ensure you contact all appropriate agencies.

Under the Health Protection and Promotion Act a "food premises" means a premises where food or milk is manufactured, processed, prepared, stored, handled, displayed, distributed, transported, sold or offered for sale, but does not include a private residence.

This same Act requires anyone intending to commence to operate a food premises to notify the Medical Officer of Health of the health unit in which they wish to operate, and to provide information regarding the manufacturing, processing, preparation, storage, handling, display, transportation, sale or offering for sale of any food on or in the food premises and the distribution of food from the food premises.

The following resources have been developed to assist owners, operators and their staff in meeting their regulatory requirements and in operating food businesses that provide safe food.
