Register Here Eventbrite

This is an intense 3 1/2 to 4-hour food safety training that provides a 3-year certification and meets the food safety training requirement for Colorado Cottage Foods Act established and supported by the Colorado State Dept. of Health & Environment.

Participants learn food safety guidelines and the specifics for operating a small home based cottage food business from a home kitchen. Learn about the most current Colorado Cottage Food Act. 

The main sections of the training cover food safety guidelines for preparing foods in a home kitchen which is different from a food service site that would be inspected by the County and/or State Health Depts.  We cover basics of proper hygiene; preventing cross contamination and cross-contact of food allergens; temperature control for safe food preparation, storage, transporting produce and sales. The allowable food products are highlighted with CSU Extension fact sheets provided for each food product allowed.  Then instructors go into product ingredient labeling, packaging requirements, marketing, preparation at altitude and for going further with your business.

***Due to online webinar, you may be in your P.J.’s and have a cup of coffee or tea.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
