The first thing we did when we started FoodSt was to engage FoodLegal, Australia's premier Food Law Practice. The lawyers helped us understand how we could build a safe, sustainable and viable business because as we told them, if it wasn't possible to do it the right way, we weren't going to do it at all. The answer was yes... it could be done compliantly and safely (which was music to our ears!).
Since then we have worked in collaboration with the NSW Food Authority, Independent Consultants and Local Councils to build a business that is low risk and safe for both our customers and our cooks.
We're very proud of the fact that we have worked in collaboration with our State Regulator.
Our discussions began in 2015 even before we built our system. This early engagement meant that we could build our entire process and system around the advice provided by the Food Authority and our lawyers. Ensuring that we would develop a business that was compliant with Food Safety Regulation. As such FoodSt has been built to comply with the Australia and New Zealand Food Standards Code (FSANZ).
It is a requirement of our platform that all cooks hold a valid Food Safety Supervisor Certificate that is recognised by the NSW Food Authority. This Certificate is the same accreditation that a Supervisor of Food Safety within a commercial kitchen has! Yes its the highest form of certification you can get.
We've partnered with the Australian Institute of Food Safety, one of the premier Registered Training Organisations in Australia to offer these courses to our Cooks.
We believe in our cooks and their ability to cook beautiful and safe food in their homes. Giving our cooks peace of mind so they can get on with creating their beautiful meals.
