Food safety is a scientific discipline describing handling, preparation, and storage of food in ways that prevent foodborne illness. This includes a number of routines that should be followed to avoid potential health hazards. In this way safety safety often overlaps with food defense to prevent harm to consumers. The tracks within this line of thought are safety between industry and the market and then between the Maui market and the consumer. In considering industry to market practices, safety safety considerations include the origins of food including the practices relating to food labeling, food hygiene, food additives and pesticide residues, as well as policies on biotechnology and safety and guidelines for the management of governmental import and export inspection and certification systems for foods. In considering market to consumer practices, the usual thought is that food ought to be safe in the market and the concern is safe delivery and preparation of the food for the consumer in Maui. When safety safety procedures are correctly followed and entrenched in a business’ culture, error rate is reduced, return on investment is greater, employee empowerment soars and your reputation is intact.

Health departments perform food inspections and other health related inspections (the person who performs this job is often called a public health inspector). Food safety goes beyond passing health inspections and meeting regulatory requirements. In the United States, several states have imposed uniform statewide restaurant grading systems, under which safety and hygiene inspection reports are used to compute numerical scores or letter grades, and those must be prominently posted by restaurants. In Maui such mandatory posting of restaurant grades is not required. A great way to search and view food inspections performed by the Public Health Department in Maui is the state of Hawaii's Inspection Health Portal
