Fundraising, Community Events and Marae Food
Fundraising & community events like markets
Sausage sizzles, and selling food like jams and cakes, are popular ways to raise money for good causes. Find out about the regulations you need to comply with if you're making and selling food for fundraising, want to sell food at occasional events like markets and fairs, or are serving food as part of a club or society.
Food prepared and served on marae for customary activities such as tangi is outside the scope of the Food Act 2014, and will not be regulated because the food isn’t sold or traded.
If you sell food at a single one-off event only once in a calendar year, you do not need to register - but you still need to ensure you make safe and suitable food.
