The Food Standards Agency has issued a consultation on the requirements for sale and use of raw dairy milk.

On 7 February 2019 the Food Standards Agency (FSA) issued a consultation on the requirements for enhanced controls in the sale and use of raw dairy milk in food products.

Under the proposals, the producers of raw milk will be required to have an effective and verified Food Safety Management System in place. This would include the regular testing for pathogens commonly found in raw milk.
