Amendments to the Food Act 2003 to Extend Statewide Registration

The State Government has amended the Food Act 2003 to include a wider range of mobile food businesses under the single statewide approval provisions.

The amendment allows businesses operating mobile pizza ovens, custom-built barbeques and food sold from temporary structures such as tables, stalls and booths to apply to their home council for permission to operate the business statewide – across all council areas.

One statewide approval and one registration fee is now all that is needed to register these businesses.
