Operating a food business
Any person wanting to operate a food business must receive approval from the local health authority before opening. This includes, but is not limited to restaurants, food stores, mobile food carts and trucks, and food manufacturers and food businesses operating short term at community fairs, festivals or special events. Learn more about how to obtain a health approval.
