Transporting food safely

Guidance for if you transport food to the consumer.

Food must be delivered to consumers safe and fit to eat. You must ensure:

  • food is transported in packaging or containers that prevent contamination
  • chilled and frozen foods are delivered to consumers in a way that ensures that they do not become unsafe or unfit to eat (for example, by using cool bags and boxes, or refrigerated vans)
  • raw and ready-to-eat foods are kept separately
