    Is there a specific licence for the type of food that will be sold.

    1) Is there a specific licence for the type of food that will be sold from the food truck?
    2) Is the a licence requirement for the type of the food that will be sold from the food truck?


    Can somebody tell me if the above sentences have been written correctly? Thank you.

    Do you think that the first three words of the second question are natural English?
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Hi emsr2d2, thanks for replying.
    I guess not.

    Maybe the first three words should be worded like this. Is there any licencing requirement.....
    Please advice.

    Re: Is there a specific licence for the type of food that will be sold.

    Both sentences are natural and grammatically correct.

    The meaning puzzles me a bit. It is easy to imagine that a food truck requires a licence, but the idea that a special licence is required for a type of food (e.g. Chinese) seems implausible to me.

    Thanks for replying. I meant the licence for different type of food that need different requirement to prepare such as raw and fresh food versus those which are pre made such as hot dog.
