Temporary Food Business Registration - Tasmania

Description

You will require this registration if you intend to operate a food business from a temporary structure, for a limited period, such as at a market, festival, fair, community event or street stall.

A food business is a business, enterprise or activity that involves the handling of food intended for sale or the sale of food.

Temporary structures include, but are not limited to:

  • Standard or converted vehicles, carts, food vans or trailers, other roadside food vendors;
  • Tents, marquees, any other temporary covered or uncovered structure;

If you are conducting your food business in whole or in part from a mobile structure then a certificate of registration from one council is sufficient to enable you to conduct your food business throughout the State.
