you would need certainly minimum of a food safety certificate to sell any foodstuffs whether made by you or just sold by you.
.... and depending on where you will be "cooking" you might need EH check ... sorry I dont know enough about it in depth to know the definition of "commercial premisies" as applied to home businesses..... no doubt there will be someone more knowledgable along in a minute ( unless I have x posted with said person lol)
Yes you do. Just contact your local council, tell them what you're planning on doing and they'll tell you what they need from you. Have a look here for help. If you email them, they'll give you loads of advice
As for the food safety cert, check that you LA allow online ones, as some don't
Thank you. I'll write a business plan, do some costings and get in touch with environmental health. It will be a case of 'melt and mould' to start off with, I'd love to be able to make my own chocolate out of cocoa beans though.
