Online Form - Food Business Registration Application

All food businesses under the Food Act 2008 must notify the Shire of their activities prior to operating. Before you start your new venture, it is important to check to see if you need Planning approval first, please contact Planning Services on 9949 3000 for confirmation.

Prior to starting your food business please make an initial contact with the Environmental Health Services who can discuss your plans and the application process with you. An application for Food Registration will need to be submitted with floor plans and proposed menu. Once received an Environmental Health Officer will risk assess your application which will then determine the inspection frequency of the business.

Once your food business set up is completed, a final inspection will be conducted, if all aspects are satisfactory you will receive a certificate of food business and your new food venture will be approved to start.
