Environmental problems Food safety - what we do

We are responsible for the safety of food, which is imported, produced, sold and consumed within the city.

We need to achieve these in a way that is responsive to the needs of residents, businesses and visitors to the city (who may be affected by poor food safety and standards) and to provide an effective and efficient enforcement programme to ensure food safety is improved and standards are maintained whilst not imposing undue burdens on businesses.
