Food Hygiene Practices & Guidelines

Educational Materials and Guidelines on Food Hygiene

To assist licensees (food operators) to upkeep their hygiene standards, SFA has developed a set of educational materials and guidelines. Food operators should implement the listed guidelines to ensure that the food served to public is wholesome and safe for consumption. Licensees should also use the published educational materials to educate their food handlers and service staff on good housekeeping, food and personal hygiene practices.

The educational materials and guidelines serve to help food operators to maintain a high standard of food hygiene and food safety in retail food establishments and prevent unpleasant and costly incidents involving food borne illnesses.
