Mobile food businesses

The introduction of state wide registration of mobile food businesses means that there are now two types of food businesses operating within the state. Food businesses that are fixed in location - café’s, restaurants, supermarkets, take-away shops and mobile food businesses - food vans and temporary food stalls.

If you intend to operate a food stall or food van regularly in the Hobart municipal area you may be eligible for a Mobile Food Business Registration.

The registration will be issued by the Council where the equipment and materials for the food business are stored when not in use, or the garaged address for a food van.

If you live in the Hobart region, please complete the online Food business application form. A printable form is available on our forms page. If you live outside the Hobart area please contact the relevant Council.

You must ensure that you are in compliance with the Guidelines for Mobile Food Businesses at all times while operating.
