Trading Standards - Food and Agriculture

Food and Agricultural Standards

The Trading Standards Service is responsible for the enforcement of food standards legislation at retail, manufacturing, wholesale and distribution premises in the county borough.

Food Standards legislation relates to the composition, labelling and description applied to food.

Premises are inspected to ensure that food on sale or for supply is correctly labelled, complies with compositional standards and not offered for sale beyond ‘use by dates’.

If you require further advice or would like to make a complaint regarding animal health or food safety then you will need to contact Environmental Health
