Temporary Food Premise

A temporary event is any occasion which is not permanent and where food is sold to consumers. Examples include fairs, festivals, markets and shows.

All temporary food stalls will need to comply with the requirements of Guidelines for food businesses at temporary events by the NSW Food Authority. The guideline advises of legal obligations, basic construction requirements and suggest ways on to maintain food safety at the event.

The temporary food stalls will need to comply with the Food Act 2003, Food Regulation 2010Food Standards Code, including the Food Safety Standards 3.2.2 and 3.2.3. 

The food business may be required to train and appoint a food safety supervisor.

To operate at special events, you will be required to gain approval from the event organiser who is responsible for ensuring that the event has appropriate approvals from Council for the event. 
 
Food used in food stalls must only be prepared in a commercial kitchen, food stall designed in accordance with Guidelines for food businesses at temporary events or in a home in accordance with Manufacturing Food From Home.
