You will need this licence if you are a for-profit business that intends to make food or sell unpackaged food by retail. You will also require a food business licence if you are a non-profit organisation that sells meals at a particular place on 12 or more days each financial year.
This licence applies to all locations and food business types, whether you are based in commercial premises, at home or from a vehicle or stall.
If you are going to operate as a mobile food business, you only need one food business licence in one of the local government areas within which you intend to operate. A mobile food business includes:
- vehicles from which you sell unpackaged food by retail
- food vending machines
- water carriers delivering drinking water.
