Assisting retailers involved in the sale and serving of soft ice-cream to comply with their legal requirements and keep their customers safe.
Food poisoning is an unpleasant illness. For young children, pregnant women, the elderly and the sick, it can be serious and sometimes fatal.
Poor practices by the food handler can result in the ice-cream becoming unsafe to eat and this can lead to food poisoning.
The aim of this leaflet is to assist retailers involved in the sale and serving of soft ice-cream, i.e. whipped and scoop ice-cream, to comply with their legal obligations. This booklet does not deal with pre-packed hard ice-cream, i.e. ice-cream sold in cartons, tubs or on a stick.
