Under the terms of the Food Safety Act 1990, retailers have an obligation to take all reasonable precautions and exercise due diligence in the development, manufacture, distribution, advertising and sale of food products to the consumer. This is the second issue of the publication which contains guidance on a best practice packaging standard providing a common basis for the evaluation of companies supplying packaging for food products to retailers. The Standard is not intended to replace the requirements of any legislation which sets a higher standard for any specific industry sector. The Standard covers a variety of issues including scope and organisation, the hazard and risk management system, technical management aspects, factory standards, contamination control, personnel issues, and the evaluation protocol.
