Name & Shame Register
The NSW Food Authority publishes lists of businesses that have breached or allegedly breached NSW food safety laws. Publishing the lists gives consumers more information to make decisions about where they eat or buy food.

Individuals or businesses may receive either a penalty infringement notice (PIN) for their alleged offence or be prosecuted in court. Each is listed as a separate register.

Details are kept on the register and website for 12 months.

Any breach of the Food Safety Standards can result in a Penalty Notice. Penalty notices are $440 per offence for individuals and $880 per offence for corporations.

Types of breaches which have resulted in the issuing of a PIN and then inclusion on the register include:

  • Failure to maintain liquid soap, warm running water or paper towel at the hand wash basin;
  • Evidence of pests on the premises;
  • Unclean premises, fixture, fittings and equipment;
  • Failure to maintain equipment in good working order;
  • Failure to store food so it is protected from contamination; and
  • Failure to display or store potentially hazardous foods under temperature control.
