Register your food business

If you store, prepare, distribute or sell food you must register your food premises with the council at least 28 days before opening.

Registration is free and applies to most types of food businesses, including restaurants, cafes, hotels, shops, canteens and market stalls, as well as temporary premises such as mobile catering and food delivery vans. If you have more than one premises you will need to register all of them.

How to register

You can download the registration form and submit online at GOV.UK.

If there is a change to your food business after registration has been processed please contact the Food Team to let them know.
