Food business information
If you are thinking about starting a new hospitality business, there are a few steps you will need to take to ensure you are legally able to operate your new business. These steps ensure you are following proper food safety standards and protects the consumer from food borne illness. If you handle food that is for sale to customers, then you will need to apply for a food business licence. Business types include Restaurants, Pubs, Cafes, Mobile Food Units, Hotels, Community Organisations, Charities that handle and serve food, Aged care facilities, Child care facilities, Tour operators that prepare snacks for customers and Food processing companies.
Every local council has different rules, regulations and classifications depending on where your new food business is located, so if your business is in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide or anywhere in between, it is important to contact your local council to determine your food business classification for the proper licencing and the local governing body.
