Dear Friends & Neighbors,
As you know I have been a strong advocate for small businesses and cottage food producers. This session we passed legislation setting up the process for cottage producers to get licensed, sell their products and comply with food safety regulations.
The legislation takes effect October 1st and I am very excited to see this program get off the ground and help people grow their home businesses!
The Department of Consumer Protection has put together comprehensive resources to help you get started:
I would appreciate any feedback as this new program is rolled out. It has been a long effort to get to this point and I want to make sure that the process outlined in this legislation works for our home producers.
As always please feel free to contact my office with any issues you may have working with state agencies or questions you have about state government firstname.lastname@example.org or (860) 240-8700.
