You will require a food business 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 a commercial premise, at home or from a vehicle or stall.
If you are going to operate as a mobile food business, you only need to have 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.
