Temporary food premises

Find out about food safety, registration and permits for temporary food premises in the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder.

Temporary food premises and food safety

A temporary food premise is any equipment and appliances for preparing or selling food that is intended to be dismantled or moved intact. This includes barbeques, sausage sizzles, cake stalls and food stands.

All temporary food businesses and stalls must notify the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder before trading in public.

Every person who sells food from a temporary food premises is responsible for ensuring the food is safe and does not cause food poisoning. Food poisoning is dangerous to customers and potentially disastrous to your organisation, and may result in legal action.

Please read the National code for food vending vehicles and temporary food premises (PDF, 290 kB) on the Environmental Health Australia website.

In compliance with the Food Act 2008, all temporary food premises need to be registered with the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder, including:
