Restaurant and Food Premises Inspections

Huron Perth Public Health (HPPH) routinely visits restaurants and other food premises, such as grocery stores, cafeterias, chip trucks, hospital cafeterias, markets, daycare centres, and more to ensure that the food being served is safe to eat. The goal is to reduce the number of foodborne illnesses in our community.

Food regulations

Under the Health Protection and Promotion Act, public health inspectors have a responsibility to inspect all food premises in Perth and Huron counties. Public health inspectors routinely visit food premises to:

  • Conduct routine inspections
  • Do re-inspections; and
  • Follow-up on complaints and suspected foodborne illnesses

During an inspection, a public health inspector checks to see that the establishment is meeting the minimum requirements set out in the Food premises Regulations.
