This organization helped me for free when I started my own company. There are possibly some issues with having the proper kitchen setup for what you are wanting to do, so I would contact them for proper advice that you can trust to be accurate and current.
please read all the relevant pages of Evira, the Finnish Food Safety Authority: https://www.evira.fi/en/foodstuff/manuf ... terprises/
If you have a commercial food-production operation you have to notify the local authorities, for example the Food Safety Unit if you are based in Helsinki. If your operation is low-risk (i.e. bakery goods, cakes) it is unlikely that you will have any problems. If you work with high-risk products, such as raw meat or fish, local authorities might impose conditions, and if you cannot fullfil them you might have to upgrade to a professional kitchen. If you are a registered business the authorities can check on your premises.
If you are handling food you should at least have a hygiene passport.
