Approval is required to prepare food from your home for sale to the public. An authorised officer will assess your application to determine if your kitchen is suitable for the preparation of food for sale. Only some types of low risk food may be prepared in a domestic kitchen for sale to the public.
Other food may be considered for approval following a written application to the City. In some instances, if the production of a low risk food product is considered of large scale, you may be required to use a separate commercial kitchen.
