Food Safety in Delaware

The Office of Food Protection (OFP) works to ensure the safety of retail foods and food services in Delaware. OFP works with Community Environmental Health Services (CEHS) staff throughout Delaware to protect consumers and monitor complaince of food establishments with the Delaware Food Code. CEHS and OFP accomplish their mission through:

  • Permitting and inspection of restaurants, mobile units and other food establishments,
  • Education of owners, managers and employees on food safety issues in their establishments,
  • Information for consumers on food safety, and
  • Enforcement activities to increase food safety in Delaware establishments.

The OFP serves as an important informational resource for Delaware consumers and establishments on food safety. Establishments looking for forms and applications can visit the inspection and permitting page for more information. Consumers can look into a Delaware restaurant on the Food Establishment Inspection Report Database, or read through the rest of our website for more resources.
