Use of non-reticulated water in a food business - Queensland Health
Water used for any purpose in food business/premises must be of a potable standard. If you intend to use water that is not from council's reticulated water supply, you will be required to treat/disinfect the water.
Food Industry Recall Protocol - Food Standards Australia New Zealand
It is a legal requirement under Chapter 3 of the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code for food manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors and importers to have a written food recall plan.
The purpose of a food recall plan is to enable a food business to efficiently recall unsafe food from the marketplace and consumers in order to protect public health and safety. In doing so, the assets of the business that include reputation and brand image are also preserved.
