Why there is a need to have Food Hygiene Officer (FHO)?

The Food and Beverage industry is transiting from an annual grading system to the Safety Assurance for Food Establishment (SAFE) framework. The SAFE framework will come into effect on 1 July 2022 for new licenses. Existing food establishments will transit to the SAFE framework from 1 January 2023 at the point of their license renewal.

By 1 Jan 2023, All category A food establishments must appoint a Food Hygiene Officer (FHO) and if the Category A food establishment wants to get the Gold Tier Award, they need their Food Safety Management System (FSMS) to be certified.
