The Food Safety Act covers the preparation, storage and service of food and requires the registration of food businesses whether they are run for profit or not. A 'food business' includes canteens, clubs and care homes. The CQC requires that care services ensure that the food and drink they provide is handled, stored, prepared and delivered in a way that meets the requirements of the Act. The local authority is responsible for enforcement through environmental health and Trading Standards. The Food Standards Agency (FSA) can intervene where local authorities fail to meet the requirements and in emergency situations.
