Do you Need A License?

First - Are you "Selling" Food?

What is "Selling" Food?
In Minnesota, "Sell" or "Sale" means any time that food changes hands in any way.

Minnesota Statute 34.01: Sell; sale: “Sell” and “sale” mean keeping, offering, or exposing for sale, use, transporting, transferring, negotiating, soliciting, or exchanging food; having in possession with intent to sell, use, transport, negotiate, solicit, or exchange food; storing, manufacturing, producing, processing, packing, and holding of food for sale; dispensing or giving food; or supplying or applying food in the conduct of any food operation or carrying food in aid of traffic in food whether done or permitted in person or through others.

So, yeah…. Probably. But join us for this free workshop to help get "unstuck" in the licensing process!

Limited space - Registration is required!
