4. Approved food premises

If your food business supplies other food businesses or retail businesses with products of animal origin (meat, fish, dairy or egg), you may require food business approval.

There are a number of requirements which must be followed and you cannot operate until your food operation has been approved by the council. If you think you may need approval, please contact the food, health and safety team.
