Food Establishment Grading

Lincoln County Environmental Health has implemented a retail food establishment grading system based on annual inspection results.  We issue a grade(“A+” to” C-“) to each food establishment based on their annual inspection. The food establishment is required to post the grade where it is visible to the public.

  Retail Food Establishment Grading Policy

During the inspection and grading process all Retail Food Establishments are assigned a Risk Factor in accordance with the Administrative Rules of Montana. The following document provides a description of the Risk Factors

Retail Food Establishments

Montana state law requires that all food establishments meet the required state and federal regulations and are licensed by the State. This means that all restaurants, coffee kiosks, grocery and convenience stores, delicatessens, caterers, and mobile trucks must be approved, licensed and inspected. 

In 2015 Montana adopted the Federal Food and Drug Administration’s regulations for Montana. These regulations can be found at: FDA

There are additional regulations specific to Montana, and they can be found in the  Montana Administrative Rule.

Applications for retail food establishments are available at: Lincoln County Environmental Health, 418 Mineral Ave, Libby, MT 59923

We encourage people wanting to start a food business to contact our office early in the process, so that you get off on the right foot and save money and delays. We have a packet available to help people plan and address the necessary steps in starting a food business.

There is more information available on the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services, Food and Consumer Safety website
