Food Safety ProgramThe primary goal of this program is to prevent food borne illness through consultation, education and enforcement of regulations.
Detailed inspections of all food premises in the province (approximately 1200 - including grocery stores, slaughter houses, eating establishments, and licensed premises) are performed on a regular basis.
Public education (both on-site at establishments and formal classroom training) is an integral part of the food protection program. This program also involves investigating complaints and suspected food poisoning cases.
Legislation enforced in this program is the PEI Food Premises Regulations. Food Premises Sanitation Plan Template
