Everyone who works with food for sale is responsible for ensuring that the food they sell, or prepare for sale, is safe for people to eat.

All volunteers and staff handling food need to have the skills and knowledge relevant to their tasks. That means that different people will need to know different things. For example, the cook will need different food safety skills and knowledge to volunteers transporting or serving food.
