Under the Food Act 2003 all ‘food businesses’ must be registered annually before food is manufactured or sold on-site.
Registrations may be for a ‘one off’ event specific temporary food permit, or an annual statewide food business permit.
This includes commercial, market, and charity or fundraising purposes from food vans, caravans, trestles, open stalls or tent based vendors.
For stall type or food vans, state-wide registration will allow you to operate throughout Tasmania for a period of up to 12 months and must be obtained from the Council in which the equipment is primarily stored.
