Food Standards Agency

Our job is to use our expertise and influence to ensure consumers can trust that the food they buy and eat is safe and what it says it is.

We are an independent Government department working across England, Wales and Northern Ireland to protect public health and consumers' interests in food.  We have a statutory objective to protect public health and consumers' other interests in relation to food.

Keeping food safe right through the food chain, from farming and manufacturing to retail and catering, we provide advice on how to manage food hygiene and safety at every stage of business. 678999
