NOTICE TO ALL CDSA CLUBS:
All CDSA Clubs who participate in selling food during the season must abide by the procedures listed below. Please read the Department of Health Food safety fact sheets listed below. Council will spot check without notice.
Charities and community groups that sell food or provide food as part of a service that is paid for are a food business for the purpose of the Food Act 2001 and are required to comply with the requirements of Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code. The Code allows a number of exemptions to the standards for charities and community groups.
To assist these organisations understand how the food legislation applies to their organisation a Food Safety Information Kit for charities and community groups has been prepared. The kit includes information prepared by the Department of Health and Food Standard Australia New Zealand (FSANZ).
