Food law prosecutions

The Food Standards Agency’s food law prosecution outcomes database is a public register of successful food standards, food hygiene and food safety related prosecutions obtained by the FSA and local authorities in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The objective is primarily to knowledge-share among enforcement authorities but it is also for the benefit of consumers.

The FSA will regularly update the content of the database, but will ensure that cases that may be subject to appeal are not published before the outcome of the appeal, by allowing 28 days after the date of conviction before a case is added to this database.

BETA This is a trial service - your feedback will help us to improve it.
