Safe Summer Food (Food Safety Week 2017) toolkit

Over the summer period, the Food Standards Agency will be running consumer-facing communication themed around safe summer food. This activity will launch with Food Safety Week on Monday 19 June 2017.

We will be promoting good food hygiene behaviours at home, focusing on correct behaviours relating to chilling and cooking. This year’s Food Safety Week will be themed around picnics and barbecuing, including thorough cooking of burgers.

We would welcome the support of local authorities and our partners in the delivery of this activity and have produced a toolkit of material for this purpose.

We appreciate that it is not always possible to deliver activity within Food Safety Week itself, which is why this year we are seeing it as the launch of longer period of work, which we hope will enable you to incorporate messages at a time that works for you.
