Food Permits:

Overview FAQs Articles Locations

Food Permits are required from the NSW Food Authority for various industries and businesses, such as those businesses:  

  • Handling and selling meat including processors, packers and retailers;
  • Handling and selling fish;
  • Providing food services to vulnerable persons within the community such as the elderly;
  • Transporting food products;
  • Producing plant products; and
  • Dairy farmers, factories and retailers.

This Permit must be clearly displayed at the business' premises.

For retail businesses, the Local Council may need to be notified of the business’ operations, instead of needing to apply for a Food Permit. Such businesses may include:

  • Food stalls;
  • Supermarkets;
  • Childcare centres;
  • School canteens;
  • Restaurants, cafes and take away restaurants;
  • Importers;
  • Businesses whose primary function is not the sale of food such as petrol stations.

If you are a business owner or are preparing to set up your own business which will involve the sale or handling of food, we recommend that you contact our office and arrange an appointment to see one of our Compliance & Regulatory Law Solicitors in our Sydney office.  For a complete listing please see our "Locations" tab.
