UK law requires registration of premises used for a food business (including market stalls, delivery vehicles and other moveable structures). It involves completing a very simple form which details of the name, address, type of food business, the foods handled, the name of the proprietor, address of head office or registered office, number of people engaged in the food business and whether or not it is a seasonal business.
Also I know that you will need food hygeine also.
Additional licenses will be needed for sale of alcohol, late night opening and such like. Your local council will ve able to help.
If you run or intend to start up a business (food business establishment) which handles food of animal origin and you supply/sell to another business (another establishment), you may need to be approved rather than be registered.
Food of animal origin would include:
Fish and fishery products
Milk and dairy products
Egg and egg products
Cooked meat products (such as pies, ready meals etc)
Meat preparations (such as sausages, kebabs etc)
Mechanically separated meat
Rendered animal products
It is important to note that if you ONLY sell direct to the final consumer, in other words to the person who is going to consume the food, then you do not need to be approved. This would include activities such as: restaurants, catering operations, retails shops such as supermarkets, public houses, factory/office canteens, wholesale outlets etc.
Hope this helps you out and good look.
