The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) is hosting the second of its Breakfast Bites webinars entitled Starting a Food Business – what you need to know on Thursday 8 April from 10am to 10:40am. The webinars are free, informal virtual meetings for food businesses.

Foteini Bompola from the FSAI will outline what you need to do when setting up a food business, who you need to talk to and relevant legislation you need to comply with. The short presentation will cover all types of food businesses, including food trucks and other mobile units. Following the presentation attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions.

Dr Pamela Byrne, chief executive of FSAI, said: “All food businesses, big or small, whether operating from a business premises, in the home or from a mobile unit or food stall, must be aware of the legislation regarding food hygiene and food safety. It is the responsibility of the food business owner for ensuring the food they produce, and sell is safe to eat. We would encourage anyone who is thinking of, or in the process of, setting up a food business to attend this short webinar which will cover everything you need to know from a food safety and hygiene perspective.”
