New food businesses can be fined if they do not notify their local Council about their food business details prior to commencement and notify any changes.

From 3 January 2014, NSW food businesses are no longer required to notify local councils or the NSW Food Authority of their FSS details (including the need to notify of a FSS’s change of details).
It is important to note that there are no other changes to the FSS program.

Any business that sells potentially hazardous, ready-to-eat food, not sold and served in its package (eg. cafés, restaurants and similar retail food outlets including market stalls) must still appoint an FSS who has completed the mandatory training and can implement safe food handling practices in the business.

Businesses are still required to keep a copy of the FSS certificate on the premises for Authorised Officers to check during inspections.

I call it "PJ training" because most of it I completed in my pyjamas.

I could also replay sections if it didn't sink in the first time.  Thank you so much! Warm regards, Julia

So many thanks to all at CFT for your patience, very happy with your prompt service.

Peter Cole - Pyrmont- Food Safety Supervisor training

Just a bit of feedback :

I thought the course would be "jumping through the hoops".

To the contrary, I found it challenging, informative and interesting (despite being in the industry a LONG time).

Oh, and all my dealings with CFT were smooth and professional.


Adrian T - Cooranbong

As an accountant by trade, I actually enjoyed working through this online Food Safety Supervisor course... The information is well delivered.

You're a superstar mate. Thanks for all your help

Androulla A - Horningsea Park

I have learnt so much doing this course.. I believe everyone who wants to own or have a business should do this course...


Kevin G - Double Bay

Many thanks for your training and advice.

I have just finished a meeting with our head Chef and we have taken all on board. We have already initiated a schedule and action plan for the FSS and venue.

I must say it was a great 'refresher' and the stringent standards that must be met and adhered to.

I would like to add from the 'get go' that initial contact to your office and staff has been professional and helpful on all levels, it is a daunting requirement and was made easier by the smooth running of your office.

Roxanna J - Blayney

Thanks so much, I really enjoyed learning through this online Foo Safety Supervisor course.

Harvey J - Wollongong

Being in the kitchen all day, then sitting in a classroom at night or on my day off wasn't for me. I would rather use this time to catch up with friends or a round of golf! I was able to complete this training at a time to suit me and I didn't need any fancy equipment or super computer skills, it was very easy to understand and follow. Thanks Centre for Training Guys...Harvey
