The FSA has produced guidance to give practical advice to consumers buying food sold over the internet. We have also produced guidance for businesses selling food online, which outlines legal requirements and safety considerations.

The publications cover consumer advice on how to purchase food online safely, advice to businesses who sell food online which covers safety advice and outlines how to comply with the law.

To complement these products we have also produced a guide for enforcement officers when dealing with businesses selling food over the internet.
