The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) will hold their free Small Food Business Start-Up Seminar on Wednesday, 28 January. The event aims to assist those in the small food business sector, whether they are getting started or are already established.
The half-day seminar will include expert guidance from members of the FSAI and the Health Service Executive on compliance with food safety legislation. They will cover topics including running a small food business, food safety training requirements, setting up a food safety management system, labelling regulations, traceability, the food recall process, inspections and the information resources available from the FSAI. Microfinance Ireland will also be available to discuss loans available for new and established small businesses.
Chief Executive of the FSAI, Prof. Alan Reilly described the seminar as a way to break down the barriers facing food entrepreneurs and make it easier for new businesses to comply with various food safety and hygiene requirements.
He also added, "This seminar is one of a number of free supports we provide on an ongoing basis to budding food entrepreneurs. We have a free Advice Line and a dedicated online resource to assist business people thinking of setting up a new food outlet or business."
