Important Information for Food Trucks/Vendors
Once invited to attend one of the City of Canning's Major Events, there are several tasks specifically for Food Trucks/Vendors that need to be completed before fully securing their spot at the event:
1. Pay the relevant site fee for the event.
2. Complete an STPP (simplified Trading Partnership Permit).
3. Agree to use reusable serve ware supplied by a Go2Cup (a reusable serve ware provider) This is a FREE service which you will not be charged for.
Event Site Fees - (Food Truck, Food Vendors & Stall Holders ONLY)
The City of Canning will be introducing a new site fee structure for food truck/vendors and stall holders participating in our events for the 2023-2024 FY Event Season. The only exception to this fee structure will be our Mid Week Eats Event Series and New Years Day Concert and Fireworks event which both operate under different structures due to their size.
What is an STPP? 🍕🌮🥗🍜🍦☕ (Food Trucks & Food Vendors ONLY)
If you have been invited to attend ANY approved, organised, public event in the City of Canning, City of Gosnells or Town of Victoria Park to sample and/or sell food you will need to obtain a permit authorising you to do so. This is called an Simplified Trading Partnership Permit (STPP) and it lasts up until the end of the current financial year it is issued in. An STPP is not the same as a Food Business Registration though. Read more here.
The Simplified Trading Partnership Permit (STPP) is for an already registered food businesses who want to trade at approved, organised, public events. What is really great about the STPP, is that it actually represents a partnership between the City of Canning, City of Gosnells and Town of Victoria Park so can be used for events in all three areas.
