Under this Act prevents the sales of an food which is not fit for consumption. The basic logic of the Act is that all food products must be accurately labeled with the ingredients contained in the food.

It is illegal to sell any food which is unfit for consumption. The Act allows for environmental health officers to close down any premises which sell unfit food products.
