Keeping food safe is crucial for a food business to prevent food poisoning. To do this, all food businesses and community groups must comply with the Food Act 1984 and the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code.

Food poisoning can be prevented by following proper procedures during food preparation, storage and display. Personal hygiene is an important part of preventing food poisoning.
