Food Businesses: Forms & Information
Please see below for forms and information related to new business/change of ownership, temporary events, mobile food facilities, farmers’ market vendors, cottage food operations and other common forms.
Food Health Permits are getting a new look
The new permits will now expire one year after they’re issued—so you don’t have to search for a permit that was issued decades ago. Starting July 1, 2016, San Mateo County Environmental Health Services will be sending you a new invoice for your annual permit to operate. Please pay promptly and we will send you the permit that is required to keep your business open. Call (650) 372-6200 for more information.
For more information about the Repeat Major Violation Program or the Retail Food Inspection Program, please call Environmental Health at (650) 372-6200. Inspection information is public information. Please call for an appointment to review the file on a food facility that you may be interested in or to talk with the inspector for that area.
