State law requires the licensure of food service establishments (temporary and permanent). Types of food service establishments licensed by this program include:
Special Transitory Food Units (a temporary food establishment that is licensed to operate throughout the state without the 14-day limits or a mobile food establishment that is not required to return to a commissary)
The Michigan Department of Agriculture is responsible for inspecting and licensing establishments such as retail stores, bakeries, butcher shops, produce markets, food warehouses and processing plants as well as State or county fair concessions.
