‘Food’ includes drink, so if you produce, sell, make or present anything intended for human consumption on a regular basis, the business must be registered with us at least 28 days before you start trading.
If you are moving from a different area, relocating or opening a second business within North Somerset, the business details must be registered. We also recommended you check whether planning permission is required for your type of business at the new address. Registering a food business does not override any planning restrictions or constraints.
If you intend to operate on land you do not own, you may be required to obtain a Street Trading Licence. Registering a food business does not mean any other licences or permissions have been granted. You must also obtain any relevant planning permission before starting business.
There is no cost to register a food business.
