Market/Homemade Food Council Crack Down

The Bundaberg Regional Council have been focusing on the regions homemade food and market food sellers. Council members have been checking food stalls in markets, but have yet any authority to close anyone down. Some chefs/cooks have taken food safety courses and are randomly audited. Jam and relish maker Dennis Smith says that as long as the food is made properly with the best intention, food makers should not have any reason to worry. At the moment market stalls do not need a license, but do need to let their local councils know they are preparing food and follow the standards of the Food and safety act. One commenter of the news article believes the council should be focusing on bigger overseas businesses. However Mrs. Bell, the market coordinator of Apple Tree Creek states that “It’s in the best interests of everyone they do it, there are a few people who have been slipping under the radar.”
