A food business that conducts the following activities requires a licence:
Sale of unpackaged food by retail, unless non-profit organisation, e.g.
BBQ stall/sausage sizzle at outdoor event
Food stalls at markets.
Non Profit Organisations
Non-profit organisations are considered licensable food businesses if they provide meals at a particular place on at least 12 days each financial year. Examples:
A restaurant, open daily to the public operated by a sporting club to raise revenue for the club
A non-profit organisation preparing and selling meals to homeless persons at a homeless person hostel
the preparation of meals by Meals on Wheels
Mobile food van (providing meals) at a sporting ground.
If you operate your licensable food business from temporary premises (e.g. stalls, fetes or markets etc) in more than one local council area, you are required to hold a food business licence with each of the local councils where you intend to operate.
NB: If you are unsure if your business requires a licence, contact council.
