Participate in safe food handling practices
Australians consume over 20 billion meals every year. Of these, it is estimated that less than 0.02 per cent result in foodborne illness. Nevertheless, this equates to about 4.2 million individual cases of food-borne illness every year in Australia. In Australia, many companies have recognised that producing safe food is essential to their viability and have implemented preventative food safety management systems. Manufacturers, larger retailers, fast-food franchises and Australia’s export markets increasingly demand that their suppliers implement audit food safety programs as a means of verifying the safety and quality of the products they buy.
