Updates & 2017 Food Safety Classes Info

Hello everyone! I hope this finds you well and keeping warm. For all of you who haven’t yet seen the Facebook post from today, the December 17th food safety classes have been changed. There will only be one class given that day from 9am to 12 pm. This class is for both Tiers 1 and 2.

Suzanne Driessen has given me the new schedule for Food Safety Training in 2017. Please take note and attend one of these classes if you have not already done so. These classes are legally required for all Tier 2 registered food producers. The classes are very interesting and informative for all cottage food producers. You will learn how to produce, package and label your products safely. These classes are also a good opportunity to ask Suzanne any specific questions you might have with regards to food safety.

By now everyone who needs to re-register for 2017 should have received their letters in the mail with instructions on how to re-register online. It is very easy to do and works very quickly. I received my new registration card two days after I filled out the online information.  If you have any problems contact the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, mda.cottagefood@state.mn.us

It’s so exciting to think that this is the second registration card many of us have applied for. The year 2016 has been very successful for many of you and I am so happy for you! Hopefully 2017 will be even better for Minnesota cottage food producers. Maybe I will actually find time to bake myself! Wishing you all a very Happy New Year!
