About Us

Ever wondered why “food safety” gets such a bad rap? Why do we need so many rules and constant policing? Why is it, the more we talk about it, the less people seem to listen Here’s my personal take, Food safety feels like a buzzkill, a boring list of do’s and don’ts that everyone is very confident they already know.

What really gets people fired up? What makes them share on social media? What’s a topic that stirs quick, intense passion?

Enter food poisoning!

Somewhere along the line, we’ve lost the connection between food safety and the real threat of food poisoning. The aim of this site is to bridge that gap. Let’s make food safety something relatable, and discuss food poisoning and its consequences to ensure people take notice. Because real change happens when we care enough to act.

This website operates on a not-for-profit basis. We do promote “The Rotten Food Cookbook” to try and spread awareness about food poisoning and we also have links to our sponsor’s websites to cover web hosting and other costs. We’re not here to make money, but to positively impact lives.

Feel free to share your suggestions or make submissions through our Contact Us form. Your feedback is invaluable to us. Explore our fact sheets in ‘Resources’ focusing on food temperature, with more in the works, including one for Scores On Doors.

Our sponsor, OnSolution, supports the Food And Safety website. Check out their range of temperature loggers, handwashing training, handwashing products, and first aid kits—a genuinely great selection. (How’s that for unbiased?)
