This is not a Organic topic, but value added. Processing currently can only be done in a certified commercial kitchen.Dear SJC Farmers and Food Processors:
I have just heard about a bill that will interest some of you, regarding "Cottage Food Operations." The bill would allow small food-processing operations (with sales less than $5000 annually) to sell non-hazardous food products made in a home kitchen directly to the consumer without a food processorÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s license. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve attached the Senate Bill Report, which gives a summary of the legislation. Otherwise, please follow the links below for information.
