The Australian Institute of Food Safety


afs-logo-vertical-stack-green.svgAIFS is Australia's leading provider of food safety education and training.

Each year we help thousands of Australian organisations protect their customers and maintain food safety compliance.

As a Not for Profit Organisation dedicated to the promotion of better food safety practices within Australia, the Australian Institute of Food Safety Foundation has a mandate to educate the public.

In addition to training, the AIFS Foundation helps to inform and educate the food industry and general public on the benefits of sound food safety practices.

Nationally Recognised Training


Our Food Safety Supervisor and Food Handler courses (standard and refresher) are:

  • approved by local councils
  • accepted by Health Inspectors
  • food safety audit compliant

When you complete an official AIFS course, you comply with all state and federal legislation for food safety training.

We also offer refresher courses. These are mandatory in some states every 5 years, and may also be used to renew your complimentary AIFS membership

Most AIFS courses can be completed online in just a few hours.

Food safety laws and requirements


All food workers in Australia must abide by the Food Standards Code. Additional food safety laws and requirements are determined by food worker roles, sectors and states.

AIFS Membership


Everyone who successfully completes our Food Safety Supervisor or Food Handler course receives a complimentary 2 year membership with AIFS.

Membership inclusions can protect and benefit you, your business and your customers.

Access to resources

AIFS membership provides you with access to numerous food safety resources including food recalls, posters, templates, guides, webinars and more.

Food business signage

Depending on the course you do, you'll receive some great business signage to show customers that you take their health and safety seriously:

  • 'Serious about Food Safety' Decal for your door

Working towards better food safety

We believe that educating food workers and the general public is key to reducing the number of food-borne illness incidents in Australia.

That's why we provide hundreds of free resources and promote food safety through the media and other channels.
