Cottage Food Program Info-session to be Held October 2


The first of three information sessions about the new cottage food program will be held on Friday, October 2nd from noon to 1pm in conference room 101 of the Community Services Building.

Beginning October 1st, Montana implemented a Cottage Food Program that allows certain food items to be produced in a home kitchen and sold to the public. The list of products allowable to be sold under this program is limited and specific to foods that have very low risk of causing foodborne illness.

The Richland County Environmental Health Office is holding a one-hour information session for those people interested in beginning the production of cottage foods in their homes. The session will introduce the new program rules, review application requirements, and address questions. Two additional sessions are planned for the near future, and will address the same subjects.

Production of cottage food products requires a special registration and submission of labeling information as well as fees. To inquire about this program, contact Stephanie Ler at 433-2207.
