Charities and not-for-profit organisations which sell food for fundraising purposes are still considered to be food businesses and need to comply with food safety requirements.
While not-for-profit organisations are exempt from appointing a Food Safety Supervisor, you are responsible for ensuring all food safety requirements are followed. For factsheets, guidelines and access to free training see the food safety inspections and resources page.
You do not need to notify us if the food you are selling:
If you are not exempt you must notify us of your organisation's details using the online form below.
