Starting up an online baking business

Postby Baking-queen » Sun, 10 Aug 2008 11:27 am

Im really into baking and would like to start up an online baking business and i have no idea how to go about it ( any legal issues, certifications that i must have, etc etc)

I remember that some time back there used to be a host of people setting up blogs that sell home baked stuff but it was made to close down by the NEA.

So now you have to get your 'workplace certified or something right? I was wondering how much it costs and can you certify your kitchen at home :D thanks

1. Do I require a licence to manufacture food for distribution? If yes, can I do it in a residential house or in a food shop?
Yes, under the Sale of Food Act, a licence to operate a food processing establishment is required from AVA, for the manufacturing, processing, preparation or packing of foods (excluding meat or fish processing) for the purpose of distribution to wholesalers and retailers.
For licence to operate a meat or fish processing establishment, you may contact Ms Jannie Wan at Tel: 6325 7100 for more details.

The premises used for manufacturing, processing, preparation or packing of food for the purpose of distribution must be carried out in a properly designed and constructed food processing establishment equipped with all the necessary facilities.

Use of residential house or food shop as food processing establishment for manufacturing of food for distribution is not allowed.
