Michigan Food Establishment License Application

This application form applies to those food establishments licensed by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD). Establishments not licensed directly by MDARD are licensed by a local health department. For more information as to where particular establishments are licensed, see the article, "Determine Which Agency to Contact." This application should be the last thing you do in the process of setting up a new food establishment. For more information on the individual steps to be taken along the way to setting up a food establishment in Michigan, please see our Food Establishment Licensing Step-by-Step Guide.

If you have taken care of all of the above, please download, fill out and submit the application form: Download the Application

All licensing fees are non-refundable, per statutory requirement.
