If you’re holding a large outdoor event, or your business requires emergency refrigeration, a great option can be to hire a fridge or freezer trailer. However, if you’re going to do this, it’s important to bear in mind that all food served to the public has to be stored in a way that complies with Food Standards Agency regulations. So what are those regulations, and do fridge trailers comply?
What is the Food Standards Agency?
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) is a non-ministerial government department in the UK. It was established in 2001 with the responsibility of protecting public health from illnesses and conditions arising from food. It now also incorporates the Wine Standards Board and the Meat Hygiene Service.
