YourSAy: Food Trucks
Food trucks can play a part in continuing Adelaide’s ranking in the top five of the world’s most liveable cities. Food trucks bring a vibrant energy and fresh life to our city and add to our already outstanding food culture. In a world where we must continue to compete internationally on the strength of our lifestyle, food trucks present another attraction to add to our qualities.
The Government wants to do what it can to support food truck ventures and ensure such entrepreneurial activity is not handicapped by unnecessarily complex and changing regulation.
A discussion paper has been released that briefly explores the regulations that mobile food vendors must currently comply with, and proposes several ideas for simplifying this 'red tape' and other measures to support food trucks.
The goal is to achieve a future for food trucks where there is balance in the marketplace and consistency across councils throughout the state. Ideas raised in the discussion paper include a simpler permit system, offering rebates on vehicle registrations and offering greater freedom for food trucks to operate on State Government land.
We want South Australians to have their say on food trucks. Feedback will help inform how the government supports food trucks in South Australia.
