Food Safety and Facility Inspections




California law states that a food facility shall not be open for business without a valid permit.  Retail food facilities include any facility that stores, prepares, serves, manufactures, packages, transports, salvages, or otherwise handles food for dispensing or sale directly to the consumer.  The law which sets minimum standards and requirements for retail food facilities is called the California Retail Food Code (Cal Code). Cal Code is available by clicking on the link below. Any person proposing to construct or modify a food facility must also submit plans to the EHD detailing the construction or changes to the facility.  Listed below are some guidelines and forms for retail food facilities.
