Food manufacturers and approved premises

Businesses which process or manufacturer food that is of animal origin and sell to other businesses, not directly to members of the public, may need approval.

Animal origin includes meat, fish, poultry, dairy and eggs.  

Approval means food businesses must comply with the relevant food law and the food they produce must carry an identification number so it can be traced back to them.

The majority of food businesses such as caterers and retailers will not require approval.
