Food safety for businesses

Register your food business

You must register your premises if you are going to use them for a food business.

These include market stalls, delivery vehicles and other moveable structures. You should register at least 28 days before opening for business.

We keep a record of premises and inspect them regularly. How often we inspect will depend on the type of business.

The Food Standards Agency website provides further guidance on registration and tips on setting up a new food business:
