INTRODUCTION

BeSS (Clean, Safe and Healthy) is a recognition given to food premises’ operators to encourage the provision of safe and healthy food. Generally, there are four main criteria to be followed by food premises’ operators to gain recognition, namely:

  • Maintain clean premises;
  • Provide safe food;
  • Provide healthy food;
  • Prepare food in proper serving portions according to individual needs.

This recognition involves two components, namely food safety and quality as well as nutritional components. To obtain this certification, operators of food premises must comply with the conditions laid down for both of these components.

ACTIVITY
  • Food premises’ operators interested in the evaluation of BeSS recognition can contact State Health Department / nearest Federal Health Department [Attention: Deputy State Director of Health (Food Safety and Quality)].
