Food business registrations
To store, prepare, distribute or sell food on premises you need to register your business with us at least 28 days in advance.
- Market stalls
- Mobile catering vans
- Food delivery vans
- Home caterers
Once you have your business registered, an officer from the Food Safety Team will visit you and if your business is eligible, you will be awarded with a food hygiene rating.
Some manufacturers handling products of animal origin may need to be approved by the Food Standards Agency (who are responsible for meat inspection duties) rather than registered. Get approval for a food business premises
If you are uncertain whether your business needs to be approved or registered, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
