Food Safety Act, 1990

It is an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It is the statutory obligation to treat food intended for human consumption in a controlled and managed way.
The key requirements of the Act are that food must comply with food safety requirements, must be "of the nature, substance and quality demanded", and must be correctly described (labelled).

The Food Safety Act 1990 provides the framework for all food legislation in Britain – similar legislation applies in Northern Ireland.
The main responsibilities for all food businesses under the Act are:
  • to ensure you do not include anything in food, remove anything from food or treat food in any way which means it would be damaging to the health of people eating it
  • to ensure that the food you serve or sell is of the nature, substance or quality which consumers would expect
  • to ensure that the food is labelled, advertised and presented in a way that is not false or misleading
