The manufacturing and serving of food and foodstuffs is supervised in, for example, restaurants. This supervision ensures that the foodstuffs are healthy and safe to consume. The handling, transport, trading, import, export and marketing of foodstuffs are also supervised. The food industry operator is also responsible for carrying out in-house control. Those who plan to open a restaurant should contact Food Control ahead of time. The notification about opening a restaurant must be sent at least one month in advance. The City of Turku’s environmental health unit acts as the official body responsible for food control.
