    I am in the process of setting up a small business in Queensland retailing dried herbs and spices. The dried herb and spices will be purchased through an Australian Certified Organic wholesaler to create a spice blend product and then packaged into food grade sealed pouches for retail. I am seeking manufacturers that can do this for me, however I am also looking into the option of packaging it myself.

    I would like to know if there is a food licence that I am required to apply for in order to package the product myself. I have had a look a the ABLIS website and it says that I do not have to apply for a license under the Food Act for "the sale of seeds, spices, dried herbs, tea leaves, coffee beans or ground coffee".

    I would like further clarity on this please.

    Thank you for your kind assistance.
