Check if you need a food control plan or national programme

Me whai mahere whakahaere mahi kai, hōtaka whakahaere ā-motu rānei au

​You may not need a food control plan or a national programme if you are:

  • an accommodation provider providing food for up to 10 guests
  • an accommodation provider providing only snacks or breakfasts
  • a small scale catering and service provider where verification or enforcement is not possible due to infrequency or inaccessibility
  • a club, organisation or society selling food you produced, to members or guests, at events where selling food is not the main purpose of the event.
