Food and beverage businesses

The preparation and sale of food and beverages, even on a one-off basis or by a not-for-profit organisation, is regulated by the Tasmanian Food Act 2003 and the National Food Standards Code.  

Sale of food includes offering food or beverages (including alcohol) as a prize or reward and giving food away for the purpose of advertisement or in furtherance of trade or business. 

If you are planning to open a food business, you may be required to register your business with us.
