Observe sight and smell of food

Fresh foods will always look good and have a pleasant aroma. It should never look stale or discoloured, attract flies or have an unpleasant smell.

Remember that meat and dairy products should always be stored in the refrigerator. Meat products should never look slimy and dull or have a sticky texture.

If unsure about the freshness of any food, ask the shop attendant when the new stock will arrive.

If you develop food poisoning, seek medical attention.
