Event Details


This is an intense 3 1/2 to 4-hour food safety training that provides a 3-year certification and meets the food safety training requirement for Colorado Cottage Foods Act established and supported by the Colorado State Dept. of Health & Environment.

Participants learn food safety guidelines and the specifics for operating a small home based cottage food business from a home kitchen. Learn about the most current Colorado Cottage Food Act. 

The main sections of this statewide training covers food safety guidelines for preparing foods in a home kitchen which is different from a food service site that would be inspected by the County and/or State Health Depts.  Training covers basics of  foodborne illnesses, proper hygiene; preventing cross contamination and cross-contact of food allergens; temperature control for safe food preparation, storage, transporting produce and sales, and more. The allowable and not allowable food products are highlighted and explained.   CSU Extension  fact sheets provided for each food product allowed.  Then instructors go into  required product ingredient labeling, packaging requirements, marketing, preparation at altitude and for going further with your business.

All of the participants that pass the test receive a laminated CSU Extension Cottage Food Safety certificate that is accepted throughout the state of Colorado.  Participants are encouraged to post their food safety certificate for customers to see. They are also added to a CSU Extension Cottage Food Producers listserve that now has  over 1000 statewide trained cottage food producers on it as of 2017.  A perk is participants receive updates via emails and answers to questions that are asked get shared with all list serve producers.  

***Due to the timeframe of this training being over the lunch hour, please bring something to snack on with you
