I am a small food service business in Canada with less than 10 employees. Do I really need a food safety plan for my business?
Every business who serves food to the public in Canada is required by legislated LAW to have a food safety plan in place. All businesses in every province across Canada, are required by provincial health authority regulations, food safe regulations & Canada food safety legislation to ensure an effective food safety plan is developed and implemented for their customers and employees. The first step towards developing an food safety plan for your small business in Canada is to develop a written food safety manual which includes the proper safety procedures and policies pertaining to your business and in compliance with the provincial health authority regulations.
