Food Shops and Retail stores


Exciting times!

But there is a lot to do

If you are setting up a food shop or retail store it is vital that you have all your food compliance sorted before your first day of trading. 

You will need to complete the following steps:

  • Register under the Food Act 2014 with your local council
    • You will need to register under either 
      • a"Simply Safe and Suitable" Template
      • or a National Programme
    • This will depend on the products you sell
  • Build a Food control plan (or FCP) that fits your business
  • Design a records keeping system that fits your FCP
  • Pass a Verification audit with your local council

Don't panic! We can help with all of that
