Food Safety Officers are concerned that food in the Brentwood Borough is safe and fit to eat.

As part of the process of ensuring this, a proactive programme of unannounced visits to food premises is carried out.  This includes manufacturers, shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs, canteens, take-aways, home caterers and mobile food vans.  Evening visits are also carried out where appropriate.

Food premises are rated according to a risk assessment and this helps to determine the frequency of inspections. You can view further information about inspection regime and the rating form here to see the factors that are taken into account.

As part of the inspection process, information is provided to businesses to help them comply with the regulations.  If you would like further information, please contact Environmental Health on 01277 312500.
