The Food Safety Advisory Council (FSAC) works with Environmental Health's Food Protection Program in developing policies, regulations and interpretive guides. FSAC also assists the food industry in understanding laws, regulations, and the reasoning behind them. FSAC is a collaborative effort between business and government, comprised of representatives from the retail food industry, related businesses, and Food Protection Program staff. The overall goal of the Council is to enhance cooperation, involvement and understanding between county government and the food industry. FSAC has provided valuable input on pertinent issues such as new legislation, new industry products, and implementation of new policies.
