FSAI to Host Webinar on Starting a Food Business

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) will mark World Food Safety Day with a ‘Breakfast Bite’ webinar ‘Starting a Food Business – What you Need to Know’ on Wednesday, 7th June. The ‘Breakfast Bite’ webinars are a series of free, informal virtual meetings for food businesses and for people who may be thinking of setting up a food business.

Participants will hear the FSAI’s Advice Line Team – Niamh Dowling, Chloe Coen and Kevin Rowland – outline best practice on setting up a food business, who you need to contact, and the food legislation with which you need to comply. All types of food businesses are covered by the presentation, including food trucks and other mobile units.

The webinar is free of charge and the link to register can be found here. There will be an opportunity for participants to ask all panel members questions following their presentations.

Encouraging people to sign up for the Breakfast Bite webinar, Dr Pamela Byrne, CEO, FSAI said:

“We would call on anyone who is considering or currently setting up a food business to attend this short webinar which will cover everything you need to know on food safety and hygiene. It’s crucial for all food businesses to understand and comply with food legislation and so we also urge food business owners and operators to attend the webinar as a refresher.”

“Wednesday, 7th June also marks World Food Safety Day. Through World Food Safety Day, the World Health Organization works to mainstream food safety in the public agenda and reduce the burden of foodborne diseases globally. Consumers have a right to safe food and all food businesses – whether well-established or newly-founded – must pay close attention to food safety and hygiene standards, which helps ensure that what we eat is safe. Food standards save lives.”
