Register a Food Business

Registration of premises used for a food business (including market stalls, delivery vehicles, and other moveable structures) is required by law at least 28 days before the start of trading.

Registration allows local authorities to keep an up-to-date list of all those premises in the area so they can visit them when they need to. 

Any change in ownership or type of food premises registrations requires a new full application.

It is in the public interest that the authority must process your application before it can be granted. If you have not heard from us within a reasonable period, please contact us.

For advice or information, please contact us on 01843 577000 between the hours of 0900-1700 hours, Monday-Friday and ask for the Food Safety Team or email: environmental.health@thanet.gov.uk
