Food Businesses

All food businesses, whether they are caterers or retailers, must be registered with the local authority in whose area they are based.

There are some exemptions, so if you run a food business and think you may not have to register it, please contact us.

To Register a food business with Watford Borough Council apply online.


Please call the Environmental Health team on 01923 278503 if you want to make a complaint about a food premise and food that has been bought or eaten in Watford.
