Safer food, better business supplement for residential care homes

This Safer food, better business (SFBB) supplement is for small residential care homes that prepare and cook safer food for the residents in their care. The refreshed version of the supplement (published in February 2016) has been updated to include new advice.

Please note that this supplement is not intended for use in nursing homes. This is because there may be other food safety procedures that need to be applied, which are not covered by SFBB, for example a full infection control policy.

Please remember that the care homes supplement should be used together with the SFBB pack for caterers, which you can find at the link below. The supplement does not provide a food safety management system by itself, but includes three additional safe methods that cover specific food safety issues found in care homes.
