Cottage Food Safety Training is Oct. 5
Thanks to the Colorado Cottage Foods Act, it is feasible for folks to bring their homemade food products to market. However, specific requirements must be met. To learn more, plan to attend the Cottage Food Safety Training for Colorado Cottage Food Producers on Saturday, Oct. 5, from 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m. at the WRAC, 700 Main Street in Wray.
This course offered by Colorado State University Extension will provide food safety training required by the Colorado Cottage Food Act. Extension agents Gisele Jefferson and Joy Akey will present topics related to the most current Cottage Foods Act, qualifying foods, ingredient labeling requirements, as well as basic food safety and guidelines for operating a small home-based cottage food business from a home kitchen.
This intense 3.5-hour food safety training provides a three-year certification and meets the food safety training requirement for Colorado Cottage Foods Act established and supported by the Colorado State Department of Health & Environment.
