Street vendors face closure due to EC Food Hygiene Directive

November 15th, 1992

Statement: Street vendors and cafes will be faced with closure due to an EC food hygiene directive.

Response: There is a general food hygiene directive under discussion in the Community at the moment. The proposal is written in general terms, broadly similar to provisions already in UK law. Detailed guidance on hygiene will be left to specific industry codes of practice which will be drawn up in consultation with producers, retailers and consumers.  Such codes will be voluntary.
