Mississippi state law requires anyone who intends to operate a food establishment in the state to obtain a permit from the Mississippi State Department of Health (MS Code of 1972 §41-3-15).
Manufacturing facilities, processors, warehouses, re-packers, food vending companies, ice plants, and seafood processors are regulated by the Mississippi State Department of Health's Division of Food Protection.
Before opening a food business in Mississippi, there are several steps that need to be taken prior to the business becoming operational.
