Manage food safety and standards

We work with businesses to reduce the risks to public health from food sold in Lambeth, and we have a programme of regular food safety inspections.

Food inspections

We have a programme of regular inspections covering the 3,022 food businesses in Lambeth. This ensures that they achieve high standards in food handling and storage.

The inspection programme is centred on the recommended frequency of inspection outlined in the Code of Practice on Food Law Enforcement March 2017.

If standards fall below an acceptable level we can take legal action, where necessary.
