(1) Takeaways and Meal Delivery - Food Safety Advice for Food Businesses and Consumers

While food ordering apps have grown in popularity in recent years, customers can now place food orders from scattered locations using their electronic devices for courier services. No matter the meals are delivered by staff of food premises or third-party delivery agents, it is important to handle food properly from door to door for safety's sake.

This set of advice is intended for food business operators providing meal delivery services, including food premises and third party food delivery agents, which prepare, pick up and deliver meals ready for consumption by customers upon arrival. It aims to assist the food trade in implementing appropriate food safety measures in their operations to reduce the risk of foodborne diseases when providing food delivery services.
