Food Protection

Chefs CookingFood Protection is the section responsible for licensing and inspecting New Hampshire establishments where food is produced, manufactured, stored or sold. Our mission is to protect the safety and security of the NH food supply and to prevent foodborne illness and injuries. We also investigate complaints from consumers and foodborne disease outbreaks and serve as an educational resource for consumers and the food service industry.

These webpages provide information and assistance about how to license a variety of different food establishments including but not limited to: restaurants; retail grocery stores; caterers; packers of potentially hazardous food; bakeries; schools; private, state and county institutions; mobile food units; food processors and manufacturers; dairy producers and plants; commercial shellfish processors; and beverage and bottled water plants.
