Abstract

The significant innovation introduced by the Food Safety Act 1990 is the “due diligence” defence. This is discussed in conjunction with guidelines published by a consortium of interested bodies. Many food businesses will be required to take positive action to stay within the law. The legislation is seen to be part of developing emphasis on new quality management systems, own‐label products and advances in food retailing.
