Food hygiene for farmers and growers

Introduction

Food and feed safety and hygiene are vital factors in modern farming. The concept of hygienic practices from 'farm to fork' applies to all food businesses, wherever they are in the food chain. This concept was introduced by the European Union food and feed hygiene regulations. As primary producers, farmers and growers are at the foundation of the food chain and must ensure good hygiene practice.

This guide provides farmers and growers with information on the legislation that underpins food and feed health, safety and hygiene in their industry.
