Minnesota State Legislators: Revise the MN Cottage Food Law for Home Bakers

    1. Petition by

      S. Erickson

The amending of this law will help create employment opportunities for state residents and would give Home Bakers permission to use residential kitchens for the purpose of selling non-potentially-hazardous bakery products, such as, but not limited to: breads, cakes, doughnuts, pastries, buns, rolls, cookies, biscuits, and pies (except meat or cream pies).
It is acknowledged that the cottage food laws may require food processors to obtain a food handlers license. The amending of this law would help individuals supplement their incomes. This law will also allow small commercial bakery owners to operate from a home-based location should their business revenues start to decline due to changes in the economy.

      I am a personal chef and I believe that making my kitchen more commercial grade and producing food product in my home legally would help to supplement our income tremendously. Kitchen rental is so expensive and inconvenient for most of us with lots of children and tight schedules. Thank you.
