I would say first you need to register yourself with the health/food hygiene authorities in your area. Thry will also explain you the procedure.

Out of interest what type of food will you be selling?

Re: new start up

Hi Pakhi.
We have been through this during last 12 months.
You can start making your homemade food without a lot of formalities.
You don't need a formal company incorporation. As soon as you start selling, you are considered as sole proprietorship.
You need to inform the Kantonal Food Control about your starting activity. For Zurich, this is the link https://www.zh.ch/de/gesundheit/lebensmittel.html
A "Food Police" control will show up without preventive notice to check the status of the place where you make your production.
There are rules to follow and they will inform you about the changes you have to make/implement.
Then, they will return, again without notice, to check if you have implemented the changes.
Both control have a cost of circa 250 CHF.
I would highly reccomend you to have a liability insurance.
Hope this helps

It all depends if you want to create a SARL (real company) or if you want a statut d’indépendant, which is longer to get but more flexible than a SARL.

If you opt for company creation there are a bunch of online solution like https://startups.ch or https://entreprendre.ch

In any case, you need to really think of which structure you want for your company. Once it is chosen, it is always complicated to change.
