Tidbit Tuesday ~ Colorado Cottage Foods Act

Colorado had their Cottage Food Law amended during their 2013 legislature. Home bakers can only sell directly to their consumers. They don’t need any licenses or permits, but they do need to take a food handlers class.

There are no restrictions on how much money is made in total, however they can only make up to $5,000.00 per product, per year. For instance, you can only make $5,000.oo worth of chocolate chip cookies, then $5,000.00 worth of sugar cookies, etc. It would be interesting to know how anyone would keep track of all that. Does that mean banana nut bread would be one thing, and then plain banana bread another?
