Our firm belief is that Food Safety Regulations exist to protect people... We are not talking about building a taxi driving service! We are talking about food which has greater implications for public health and safety. Our approach has always been to work in partnership with our Regulators, to find a way to trade home-cooked food safely and compliantly. As such FoodSt has been built to comply with the Australia and New Zealand Food Standards Code (FSANZ).
This is not negotiable. This Certification is higher than a standard Food Handler Certificate and is the required level for a Supervisor of Food Safety in a commercial kitchen. This is the highest form of Certificate you can attain for Food Safety. You can rest assured that all of our cooks are trained at this level.
We believe in our Cooks and cover all of them under the FoodSt Public Liability Insurance policy.
Our commitment to Food Safety means that we can not guarantee Gluten-Free, Nut-Free, Egg-Free or Dairy-Free meals. Although selling this type of food would be fantastic for both our business and the largely under served market for allergen free food, we believe that SAFETY comes first.
For those people with severe allergies claiming food is free of a specific allergen for example can be very dangerous - even the slightest trace of nuts, gluten or shellfish could have disastrous health effects. Our stance is simply not to make these claims as a way of protecting both our customers and our cooks.
