Purchasing an Existing Food Premises  Printer Friendly

It is strongly recommended that a pre-purchase inspection report be requested from Environmental Health under the Food Act prior to negotiating the purchase of an existing Food Premises. A Council report will comment on the presence of any outstanding items requiring attention under the Food Act and will identify any works that may need to be completed to ensure ongoing compliance of the food premises with the Food Act. This will assist in negotiating details with respect to settlement. The request form must be completed in full by both the current proprietor and prospective purchaser and submitted to Council with the appropriate fee. Where significant refurbishment works are proposed by the prospective purchaser, an on-site meeting is highly recommended.
 
When the purchase is finalised, both parties must complete an Application form to Transfer a Food Premises and submit it to Council with the appropriate fee or a Notification Form depending on the classification of the Premises.

Note that Class 1 and Class 2 premises must have an approved food safety program and a nominated qualified food safety supervisor.

For further assistance and information please contact the Environmental Health Team on 57602683 or email council@benalla.vic.gov.au
