Classification of your food business is based on the level of food safety risk posed by the food handling that occurs at the business.
The following is considered when classifying your food premises.
For examples of activities that fall under each classification, as well as the State Government guidelines for each class, visit the Food Business Classification section of the Victorian Health website.
Food premises deemed to have the highest risk handling hazardous food that is served to vulnerable groups such as aged-care facilities, hospitals and childcare centres.
Most food businesses fall under this category and handle any unpackaged and potentially hazardous food.
Premises handling and selling pre-packaged potentially hazardous food or low-risk unpackaged food. This includes milk bars, convenience stores, warehouses and distributors.
For more information on Class 1, 2 and 3 food businesses, please see Food Safety Programs and Minimum Records.
Premises that only retail pre-packaged, low-risk foods, and have certain other low-risk or occasional activities.
Please note: the Notification of a Food Premises Form is only applicable to Class 4 food premises.
