Safer food, better business

Safer food, better business (SFBB) is a practical approach to food safety management.  There are a number of different SFBB packs developed by the Food Standards Agency depending on the food processes involved in the business.

The SFBB pack is made up of safe method sheets and a diary.  The safe method sheets highlight things that are important to make food safely and provide advice on what to do if things go wrong. 

The safe methods are split into five sections: 

  • Cross-contamination
  • Cleaning
  • Chilling
  • Cooking
  • Management

Further information and to download the packs please go to the Food Standards Agency website.  

The diary is specially designed to help you run your business effectively.  It contains week-to-view pages, daily checks, review sheets, staff training record, suppliers’ list and a cleaning schedule.   

Every day you sign to say that your safe methods have been followed and there is space to make a note of anything different that happens or goes wrong. 

Using the SFBB pack in your business will help you to

  • Comply with food regulations
  • Show what you do to make food safely
  • Train staff
  • Protect your business’s reputation
  • Improve your business.
