Section 8 of the Food Safety Act 1990 states that it is an offence to sell any food that does not comply with food safety requirements.
This includes food that:
Trading Standards officers and Environmental officers deal with offences where the food is not of the nature, substance and quality demanded by the purchaser.
Highly perishable foods will have a use by date. This is the date that the food must be used by. It is illegal to use food beyond its use by date because it can compromise safety standards.
Best before dates often apply to longer shelf life foods and usually relate to the quality of the food rather than the safety. It is common practice to destroy food beyond its best before date because the food will have reduced in quality.
No. It is an offense to do so.
It is not an offence to do so but it would be if the food had deteriorated to such a point that it was unsafe to eat.
This will depend on the type of food business and its location. You will have to register the premises used for the food business whether it is a building, market stalls or a moveable structure (delivery vehicle). This is required by law.
Registration will allow local authorities to keep an up-to-date record of all those businesses in their area so they can visit them when required. The frequency of the visits will depend on the type of business.
It is regarded as good practice to wear protective clothing while preparing food. If clothing like gloves, aprons and hairnets are not worn it may not be an offence because this depends on the specific circumstances.
All conditions and measures necessary to ensure the safety and suitability of food at all stages of the food chain.

In most cases the complaint can be dealt with by returning the food to the store it was purchased in. Sometimes the complaint may need further investigation and you may have to bring the object of your complaint, food packaging and the receipt.
Common contaminants that may make you will include forging matter and chemicals. If you have purchased food that has been contaminated with either of these then contact your local council.
