Registration of your food stall
If your food stall was registered before 1 March 2016, you must have a certificate of registration that we issued.
This rule does not apply to food stalls:
- registered under the Food Act 2014
- exempt from registration under the Food Act 2014
- selling non-perishable food
- located within a market that is already registered
- where the food sold has been prepared off-site in a registered food premises before sale and the stall operator either:
- is the holder of a certificate of registration and displays a copy of that certificate at the stall
- is operating the food stall under the authority of the holder of a certificate of registration and displays a copy of that certificate at the stall.
Food safety grade certificates
- Clearly display food safety grade certificates issued by council in full view by all food stalls.
- We may withdraw and remove certificates if the performance of your food stall falls below the grading standards.
- You must apply in writing for a food safety re-grading and pay a fee. To see how, see Grading of food businesses.
- your food stall will receive a grading after our annual inspection.
Train your staff
- At least 50 per cent of staff employed at your food stall at any one time (including part-time workers) must pass an approved basic food hygiene course.
- Staff must pass an approved basic food hygiene course before they start to work at your stall, or within three months of starting work at your stall.
- Keep evidence of staff training in food hygiene at your food stall.
