Running a home based food business

Hello! I am looking for advice on where to find information, or was wondering if anyone knows how to run a home based food business in Malta? I would like to bake cupcakes, cakes and other baked goods to sell at the markets or by order, and I was wondering what licences I would need to be able to do this or if this type of thing is even allowed? I've googled and searched everything I can think of but have had no luck. Thank you!

First you need a food handling certificate.  To get this, you have to attend a one day course.

Then, you will have to rent a space that has to meet many criteria.  This must be strictly commercial and not shared privately.  The laws are very strict.

If you are serious about this let me know.  ***
