The Food Safety Authority of Ireland has announced that it will hold a Small Food Business Start-Up Seminar, in order to assist small to medium sized businesses in the food sector to get up to speed with all relevant food safety requirements.
The seminar, which takes place from 8:00am to 12:30am on Wednesday 29th January 2014 at Chartered Accountants House, 47-49 Pearse Street, Dublin 2, will examine areas such as food product development, food safety training requirements, setting up a food safety management system, labelling regulations, traceability, the food recall process, and inspections.
“Our aim is to reduce the barriers faced by food businesses seeking to enter the arena and make it easier to comply with all the various requirements and food regulations," said Prof. Alan Reilly, Chief Executive, FSAI.
Despite the economic downturn, there has been a 5% increase in the number of food businesses established in Ireland over the last five years, currently standing at over 46,000.
The FSAI said that its advice line for food businesses has experienced a surge in interest over the past 12 months with 1,278 business start-up queries - the majority of these coming from people wishing to start a food business from home.
