Are you sampling high risk food or beverages?

High risk foods include: meats/ fish/ diary/ chicken / eggs / cooked rice/ juicing fruits/ preparing sandwiches / salads.

If so you must nominate a Food Safety Supervisor. This person must be available throughout the Event – however they do not have to be on site for the duration of the Show. They must have an Australian Food Safety Supervisor Certificate. This certificate must include competency codes SITXFSA101 – Use hygienic practices for food safety and SITXFSA201 – Participate in safe food handling practices. For high risk products you must have hand washing facilities with warm running water at the stand.

 

Are you sampling low risk food or beverages?

Low-risk food is anything that is not high risk and potentially hazardous food. This includes but is not limited to:

Dry goods, pickles/ salad dressings, bottled marinades/ protein balls. protein drinks (mixed with water), nuts in the shell/ honey and jam, peanut butter / fruit/plain cakes, biscuits and crackers / hard cheeses, fruit juices / unopened bottled beverages / raw whole fruit and vegetables, dried fruit / plain bread and bread rolls / yoghurts and confectionery / bottled sauces (tomato/ketchup), Asian and soy.

Hand washing is still required on the stand. This system can be the very portable one e.g. 10 litre drinking water container with the tap on end, plastic bucket, liquid soap and paper towelling.

AT THE SHOW

If a City of Sydney Health Officer inspects your stand the below fee is payable. The fee will cover you for a 12 month period, even if you are inspected again at another event.
