About Food Warehouses

The District Inpsection Branch of Environmental Health (DIB) is responsible for ensuring that food warehouses are inspected and conform to all applicable laws. When health and safety codes are followed it can help prevent the spread of food-related illness and help keep the community and employees healthy and safe.

The DIB team, also known as health inspectors, inspect food warehouses to make sure the food provided for human consumption is safe and free of contamination. Inspections focus on food safety practices and determining compliance with the health and safety code requirements for safe food temperatures, safe food handling, employee hygiene, an adequate supply of water and hot water, and the business is maintained clean and free of vermin (i.e. cockroaches, rodents).
