Eat Safe Brisbane logo

Eat Safe Brisbane is a rating scheme that assesses food safety and hygiene standards.

As part of Eat Safe Brisbane, every licensed food business in Brisbane receives a food safety star rating, based on compliance with the Food Act 2006, the Food Safety Standard (FSANZ) and good management practices. Food safety audits are mandatory for all licensed food businesses in Brisbane.

A food business can receive either no star, two, three, four or five stars.
Businesses that demonstrate high levels of food safety will receive three or more stars and can choose to display their food safety star rating onsite and online on Council's website. Trading details for every food business in Brisbane (name, location, phone number and licence category) are listed on the website.

Eat Safe Brisbane benefits the community, food businesses and Council by:
  • improving food safety standards and reducing incidences of food borne illness
  • increasing food safety awareness in the community to assist people in making informed food and dining choices
  • reducing the regulatory burden by rewarding businesses that demonstrate high levels of food safety and hygiene
  • allowing Council to use resources effectively by working closely with poor performing businesses to improve their food safety standards
  • maintaining Brisbane’s world class food safety standards.
Eat Safe Brisbane was developed in partnership between Council and industry bodies including Queensland Hotels Association, Clubs Queensland, Restaurant and Catering Queensland and Baking Industry Association Queensland.

Having a Food Safety Supervisor is a legal requirement of the Food Act 2006. This requirement has been in effect since 1 July 2008.

Guidelines prepared by Queensland Health encourage Food Safety Supervisors to undertake training in food safety and management practices. However, this is not a legal requirement.

Council strongly recommends that Food Safety Supervisors undertake training to provide a higher level of protection for the food business. If you would like further information regarding Food Safety Supervisor training please contact your industry association or a registered training organisation through the National Training Information Service (NTIS).
