    Hi my name is Alex,
    Just want to ask for opinion about how to start up a home based healthy food business.
    My partner and I would like to start up a healthy food delivered website, as customers can order the meals from our website, and we would deliver to them.

    Just wondering do we have to apply any licences or permit in order for us to do so?
    If yes, what kind of licence do we have to apply and is there any details we need to aware? For example, do we need to process our food in a proper commercial kitchen?

    Also, is there any recommendation and advise? We would really appreciate your time and advise, thanks. =)

    If you will be making or repackaging foods from home you will need your food handling certificates and have a registered kitchen to start. You need to go to your local council to find out the regulations and costs to convert your kitchen as well as inspections.
    If it will be too expensive to convert your kitchen you may be able to find a local for-hire kitchen but you will still need your food handling certificates.

    You will need to do a lot of research beforehand to make sure it will be worth it and that you will have enough customers. Research the regulations and costs on insurance, packaging, delivery, labeling requirements etc.

    With legislative changes coming in for ‘Made in Australia’ labelling, you will need to check requirements for nutritional panel information on your labels.

    And don’t forget to get stellar branding, so you cut through the noise of online food businesses :)
