The dining scene in the Georges River area is highly regarded, with access to quality ingredients, an ethnically diverse population and a climate geared towards outdoor dining. Eating out is a popular pastime.
All local businesses that serve food to the public are regulated by Georges River Council and the NSW Food Authority to ensure that the food they sell is safe. Businesses that sell food and drinks to the public in the Georges River Council area must register with our Environmental Health Unit and meet the requirements of the Food Act standards before commencing trade. If the business is sold to a new owner, the registration can be transferred.

 We regulate businesses and organisations that operate within the Georges River Council area, monitoring their compliance with the relevant requirements by:
  • Inspecting and registering food businesses

  • Collecting samples of food for analysis

  • Investigating complaints and incidents of illness associated with food

  • Providing education and advice.
