This page aims to provide information and guidance for food businesses who are either having to adapt their operation or are reopening after a period of closure.

A wide range of information produced by the Food Standards Agency can be found here. This includes guidance relating to restaurants, takeaways, delivery, social distancing and effective cleaning. For businesses that have been closed, there is also a  useful checklist detailing the issues to consider before reopening.

It is essential that all food businesses have assessed the risks associated with Coronavirus, and have suitable control measures in place to reduce the risk so far as is reasonably practicable. HM Government advice on the practical considerations to ensure the safety of employees and customers alike can be found here. This includes sector-specific advice for takeaway and delivery operations as well as shops.
