7.5  Communication and education

Your principal role in food control is to communicate with your community and educate people about food hygiene. You may also have responsibility for inspection of food and drink service establishments – this is described in Study Session 11.

  • Why are food control and food inspection important for your community?

  • Because maintaining food safety will protect the people from harmful and dangerous foods that could make them ill.

Effective food control must combine training, education and community outreach programmes with the effective enforcement of legal requirements.
