Online Form - Food Fundraising and Charitable Activities

A food business means a business, enterprise or activity that involves the handling of food for sale or the sale of food, regardless whether it is of a commercial, charitable or community nature, or, whether it involves the handling or sale of food, on one occasion only.

Section 6 of the Food Act 2008 allows for certain food preparation activities of a charitable or community nature to be exempt from some of the provisions of the Food Act.  One of the exemptions includes the registration of the food business.  The Food Act, however, still requires that the exempt food businesses ‘notify’ the local authority, of its intention to sell and/or handle food.  This form is to be used by an exempt food business to provide notification to the Local Authority in accordance with the Food Act 2008.
