If food is sold more than once in a calendar year that is not for fundraising purposes, the activity is subject to registration under the Food Act 2014.
If you sell food at a single one-off event only once in a calendar year, you do not need to register – but you still need to ensure you make safe and suitable food.
If you sell food at markets or events more than once a year, there are some other steps you need to take, and you’re likely to need to register as a food business.
