Food businesses – do you need to register?

Published in: TrialBalance - December 2018 Issue 65

Most businesses serving food, in one way or another, were supposed to have registered under the Food Act before 31 March 2018.

To check if you need to register, go to the Ministry for Primary Industries website.

Most businesses register with the local council. Your next challenge is to find out which plan or programme you need to

register under and this depends on the food safety risk of what you do. Go to Where Do I Fit? to get some more information.
