Food Safety

The Commercial Environmental Health Service works with businesses to ensure that all food and drink produced, stored or sold in Islington is safe to eat.

It does this by:

  • carrying out regular inspections of food businesses at a frequency determined by risk
  • promoting good standards of food safety management through the provision of advice, support and training to food business operators
  • investigating food poisoning outbreaks associated with businesses operating in the borough
  • investigating serious complaints about food purchased by consumers in Islington and complaints about food premises
  • undertaking an annual food sampling programme
  • taking appropriate action in response to food alerts issued by the Food Standards Agency
  • taking appropriate enforcement action where a food business operator fails to meet the required legal standard
  • carrying out a programme of activities to educate food handlers and consumers
