Do you need a hygiene passport?

An employee must have hygiene passport if their work tasks include handling unpackaged or perishable food products (National Food Act).

Hygiene passport is needed, for example, when working in coffee shops, fast food establishments, restaurants, industrial kitchens, grocery stores, kiosks, day care centres or factories that manufacture food products.

One must acquire a hygiene passport no later than within three months of starting a food related job. Any previous food industry work that requires a hygiene passport is also considered to be a part of this three-month period.
