Food Safety Week resources
We have produced a wide range of resources for use in local Food Safety Week events.
The materials include leaflets, posters, a schools booklet, balloons and stickers. Resources are available throughout the year, not just for Food Safety Week, so if you are planning to organise an event to promote good food hygiene, you can still order posters, leaflets and other materials.
To order, contacting Food Standards Agency Publications on 0845 606 0667 or email email@example.com.
You can also download materials from the links below.
Who is Grubeye?
Grubeye is the star of the 'GermWatch' campaign. He revels in poor food hygiene and delights in the misfortune of those at risk of food poisoning. Nothing makes Grubeye happier than when people spread germs – maybe you forgot to wash your hands before preparing food, or perhaps you used the same chopping board for raw meat and food that was ready to eat.
'Killer Facts' are another important element in the GermWatch campaign. They warn people about the dangers of poor food hygiene and provide helpful advice so people can fight back against the germs.
The grotesque GermWatch star was brought to life for Food Safety Week in ads screened on GMTV in 2008 – you can see Grubeye in action and view the ads on YouTube.
