The Food Safety Authority of Ireland's mission is to protect consumers' health and consumers' interests by ensuring that food consumed, distributed, marketed or produced in Ireland meets the highest standards of food safety and hygiene. The FSAI aims to ensure that food complies with legal requirements, or where appropriate recognised codes of practice.
The FSAI's primary focus is to assist the food industry to achieve good hygiene standards and comply with the law. We provide information to people interested in starting a food business. We also provide information on food safety training, HACCP, legislation and a range of food safety issues.
Visit our website www.fsai.ie or contact our Advice Line on 1890 336677 for information and advice. Staffed by trained advisors and food scientists, our Advice Line is open from Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.
