Safer food, clearer choices
The NSW food industry is a significant contributor to the economy with 55,000 food businesses across the state. The food processing industry alone contributes $25 billion.
NSW has around 40,000 retail food businesses that account for significant employment and economic activity. This diverse sector can include bakeries, B&Bs, cafes, canteens, caterers and markets.
No matter how safe food is when purchased, the last link in the food safety chain is safe storage and preparation by consumers.
