Food Business Sectors

Food businesses will be categorised under three sectors - manufacturing, retail and food service and distribution. It is possible for a business to select more than one sector. For example a large bakery manufacturing products primarily for wholesale may also have a retail outlet on the same site. In this case both the manufacturing sector and retail and food service sector would be selected. Alternatively a bakery predominately operating as a retailer should tick the retail and food service sector not the manufacturing sector.

Please select one or more of the appropriate box(s) below to indicate the sector or sectors in which your business operates.  

Retail and Food Service Sector

Retail business is a businesses that sell food to the public which is not processed on site (can include slicing & weighing of delicatessen products and reheating/hot holding of RTE cooked foods). Generally not intended to be consumed on site and can include supermarkets, convenience stores or specialty retail stores (e.g. bakery, butcher.)

Food service business means businesses that make and/or serve food for immediate consumption (may include transport) regardless of whether the food is consumed onsite or elsewhere.

The retail and food service sector is based on the type of business description. Within this group is a sub group defined as businesses serving at risk persons. These businesses will be classified as high priority. The category OTHER is also included for businesses not covered in the provided options.
