Safer food, better business

washing hands in a sink

Safer food, better business (SFBB) is an innovative and practical approach to food safety management. It helps small businesses with food safety management procedures and food hygiene regulations.

SFBB packs and training

There are a number of SFBB packs available that are designed to meet the specific needs of different food businesses:

The factsheet 'Working with food? What you need to know before you start' provides an introduction to food hygiene.

The online guide, available in 16 different languages, will help food businesses implement SFBB and train staff on SFBB. The guide can be viewed online at .

Need a pack or diary refill?

If you would like a SFBB pack, please download and print it from the links in the section below.

You can print out the new print-friendly version of the diary refill separately if you only need that part of the pack. This new version can be filled electronically and allows you to download the diary pages onto your computer desktop, fill them in, name them for the appropriate month and year and store them electronically, if you prefer.

New businesses

If you are registering as a new food business with your local authority, ask if they can give you an SFBB for caterers pack. Most local authorities have an allocation of these for new businesses, subject to availability. Find the contact details of your nearest local authority.

Having trouble viewing these PDFs?

We have provided the information in our SFBB packs in PDFs (Portable Document Format) for you to download and use. This type of file compresses information in a small size that is easier to email and download. To ensure that you have no trouble printing or using the PDFs in this section, please ensure that your computer is installed with the Adobe Acrobat Reader. You can get this as a free download from the Adobe website.

To get started with SFBB, download the PDF you want and save it to your desktop before you start work on it. Once the PDF has been saved onto your desktop, open it up and you can then print it, or start logging in your daily safety checks and records online. Downloading files and saving them on your desktop first, will help you avoid strange symbols appearing on your printed copies.
