Starting a new food business

If you are looking to start a new food business, that includes the construction or internal fit-out of a building or mobile food truck, then you will need to be aware of the construction requirements of the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code .

These requirements will also apply to an existing food business that may be subject to any alterations or additions.

It is recommended that you speak with an Environmental Health Officer before undertaking any works. An application for Food Business Registration is required prior to starting your food business.

You will also need to consider whether a development (planning) approval or building permit is required, before starting any works.
