Ensuring safe and healthy food on the Peninsula

2 July 2019

Mornington Peninsula Shire invites the community to provide their thoughts on the draft Food Safety Management Policy 2019.

The Policy aims to address the manufacture, supply and sale of safe food on the Mornington Peninsula.

The draft Food Safety Management Policy 2019 will also:

  • Assist food businesses and community groups to serve safe, healthy food and protect customers with food allergies.
  • Provide excellent customer service to all food safety stakeholders.
  • Support the Best Bites program to promote healthy, accessible and sustainable food businesses.

Mornington Peninsula Shire Mayor Councillor David Gill said “what we want is not only the safe serving of food from all Peninsula establishments but also the promotion of healthy eating alternatives. The health of our community, especially our children is a major part of policy now going to public consultation”.


Community consultation is currently open and closes 5pm Friday 2 August 2019.


To complete an online form and view the draft document visit: mornpen.vic.gov.au/haveyoursay.

Forms will be made available to read in hard copy at the Shire’s offices in Rosebud, Mornington, Hastings and Somerville.
