There are many types of food businesses in the Babergh and Mid Suffolk Districts, ranging from small retailers to large food manufacturers. All food businesses are now required to register with their local authority. Mobile premises must be registered with the local authority where the mobile is normally kept overnight.
If you are starting a new food business, or have taken over the running of an existing food business, you need to complete a Food Premises Registration Form.
Food premises register for Babergh District Council is available to view by appointment at the Babergh council offices.
The Food Standards Agency is an independent Government department set up by an Act of Parliament in 2000 to protect the public's health and consumer interests in relation to food.
