If you run a food business, you must register with us 28 days before you start operating. This applies to any premises used for storing, selling, distributing or preparing food and relates to both new businesses and existing premises which change ownership.
- Care homes
- Market stalls
- Mobile catering vans
- Food delivery vans
If you use your home for a food business you must also register although specific requirements apply to child-minders.
When registered, one of our officers will carry out a food hygiene inspection.
Email CommandBusSupport@cherwellandsouthnorthants.gov.uk if you need any advice as we are happy to provide guidance to help you meet legal requirements and ensure you can gain the best possible rating from the start.
