Registration with local council
If your local authority has been in touch asking you to explain your operations and/ or register as a food business, don't worry and take a look at this helpful guide.
Your local authority may not know that you volunteer with OLIO, or even know what OLIO is. You can explain that you are an OLIO volunteer saving surplus food from going to waste 🦸
The image below is OLIO's assured advice from South Derbyshire Council. This assured advice confirms that as an OLIO volunteer, you do not need to register as a food business in the UK.
You can find all your formal documents in the "documents" section on the volunteer hub, which along with your training and the guides in this FAQ section, make up your food safety documentation.
