Food Business Notification - Copper Coast Council - South Australia


You will need to notify your council if you intend to operate a food business.

A food business is any business or activity that sells food or handles any type of food for sale (except for some primary food production activities). This includes a business of a commercial, charitable, or community nature.

Notification is required to ensure councils are aware of food businesses in their area and to obtain contact information for businesses to facilitate regular inspections.

If your business operates multiple food premises, you will need to provide a separate notification form for each site.
