To help consumers practice good food hygiene in the home kitchen, the Food Standards Agency have produced some useful pages to inform them on a variety of subjects related to food safety:

Best before and use-by dates

Avoiding cross-contamination in the home

How to cook Barbecues safely

Visit Britain's resource The Pink Book Online: Legislation for tourism accommodation summarises the legal requirements food businesses must adhere to in the UK.

In December 2014 the law on how allergen information is provided by food businesses changed, to make it easier for those with allergies or intolerances to buy food and eat out safely.

Below are links to websites with information on food allergies for consumers and food businesses.
