MARSHALL — University of Minnesota Extension Food Safety Educators Kathy Brandt and Suzanne Driessen will lead a Cottage Food Producer Food Safety Training webinar and online course for people to meet the Minnesota Department of Agriculture food safety training requirements to register as a Minnesota Cottage Food Producer.

The training focus is on food safety practices for all processes covered under the Minnesota Cottage Food Law (CFL) including drying, baking, confections, jams and jellies, acid and acidified fruit and vegetables, and fermentation. Participants learn how to produce, package, label, store and transport a safe food product. Many details of the CFL will be covered including who needs to register, where allowed cottage food can be sold and the maximum gross yearly sales allowed.

Registration is required, and there is a fee to participate. To register for the March 27 webinar, or to enroll in the online course, visit http://bit.ly/3bN9A4l. For more information, contact Kathy at (507) 337-2820 or brand030@umn.edu.
