Food Safety at Events

If food and/or beverages will be supplied or sold at your event, all persons involved in the handling of food are responsible to comply with the National Food Safety Standards. See the SA Health website for more information.

A food business is any business, enterprise or activity that involves the handling or sale of food in a commercial, charitable, or community nature regardless of whether it involves the handling or sale of food on one occasion only. Under the Food Act, 2001, all food businesses are required to complete a Food Business Notification (FBN) with their local council, which is registered with SA Health.

Caterers and mobile food businesses should notify the council area relating to their base of operation. Please refer to Light Regional Council’s Mobile Food Vendor – Location Rules Policy.

For more information on reducing risks at your event, refer to the Safe Work SA booklet Food catering sites.
