Understanding Food Hygiene and Safety Regulations

Placing on the Market

At what point in the process of food production do food hygiene and safety regulations consider you have placed your product on the market?

Does Food Law apply if you give your products away?

When does Food Law view that your products have been placed on the market?

Does the law apply only to the finished products, or the ingredients and equipment you have available to make them?  Does it apply to charity events or product sampling, and if so, when and how?

This chapter answers these questions and defines when the full effects of food hygiene and safety law will apply to your business.
