The Food Hygiene Program is designed to ensure that facilities regulated by the Florida Department of Health in Orange County serve food, beverages, and snacks in a safe and sanitary manner and minimize the occurrence of food related illness. There are 3 state agencies that license and regulate food service facilities.
The Department of Health regulates food service establishments as defined under Chapter 64E-11 of the Florida Statutes. These include:
Most inspections of these facilities are conducted quarterly. The Department of Health also investigates suspected food borne illness cases in all establishments. If you think you have become ill from eating in a food service facility, report it to our office immediately by calling 407-858-1497.
