How to get a Food Business Licence?

13 Jul 2016

While I am looking for a building contractor for my upcoming kitchen renovation, I had to make sure I understood the whole process.  The last thing I want to do is to miss a crucial step which can delay me getting my food business licence. 

 

The first thing I think that should be looked at is their roadmap.  I found this very useful as it gave me a clear pathway of the steps required.

The other useful items I found from their website was the self assessable checklist as this was a good place to check whether there are any zoning restrictions in your area.  Any zoning restrictions can stop you from getting a licence.

The local government toolbox is also a great resource for information:

 I called the BCC hotline 133BNE several times to ask questions that I couldn't find answers for on the website or in the set up guidelines.  They were always really helpful and if they couldn't answer my question immediately, they referred it to a more specialised team.  Once referred I always got a follow up phone call within 24 hours.  

 

So the first step for me is to get a kitchen plan approval. So here goes nothing!
