Food retailers and food service businesses are invited to attend a short information session about food safety, to be held in October.

Cessnock City Council has partnered with the NSW Food Authority to deliver a Retail and Food Service Information Session, covering how to prevent foodborne illnesses, food safety legal requirements, pest control management, effective cleaning and sanitisation.

The information session will be held on Wednesday 19 October 2022, from 9am to 12pm, in the Program Room at the Cessnock Performing Arts Centre.

Cessnock City Council Mayor Jay Suvaal encouraged local hospitality business owners and staff to register, and come along with any questions they have regarding food safety.

“This is a great opportunity for local business owners and staff to learn from food safety professionals, and raise any issues, ideas or challenges they face in the workplace,” Mayor Suvaal said.

“It’s also a great chance to network with other local hospitality industry professionals.”

This free information session will be delivered by the NSW Food Authority in a relaxed learning environment, with morning tea and coffee provided.
