Food Business Notification

All Businesses are required under Section 86 of the Food Act 2001, to fill out a Food Business Notification (FBN) form. There is no fee attached to this, but there is a legal obligation to complete one. A FBN form should be submitted to council before you commence trading. Also, if any details change, e.g. a new proprietor, or change of location, you must notify Council within 14 days.

Food Safety - Food Recalls

To view information regarding current food recalls please view the Food Safety Australia New Zealand website by clicking here.

While you're there, have a look at other aspects of food safety and the food industry.


The City of Port Lincoln is increasingly being approached by community members who are concerned about the responsibility of organising community events, where it is intended that food will be consumed by members of the public.  We have developed guidelines to assist community members in the planning and facilitation of events with regard to food safety.

To download a copy of the guidelines click here.

The City of Port Lincoln can provide you, your organisation or association with a Special Event Permit if you wish to use Council footpaths, land, parks or gardens for any purpose.
