Before you start

Ensure your at-home food business complies with relevant parts of the food standards code, including:

  • standard 3.2.2 food safety practices and general requirements
  • standard 3.2.3 food premises and equipment
  • part 1.2 labelling and other information requirements.

If your at-home business only sells to other businesses such as cafes, restaurants and supermarkets, contact the NSW Food Authority for approval.
