Can someone direct me to a link with the information on how to start up legally in Florida with a commercial kitchen? I tried the search but I can't get anything to come up. Thanks a bunch.

In FL bakeries are inspected by the department of agriculture. On their website there is a document that lists all the requirements for a bakery to pass inspection. Lots of sinks!

The cottage law bill was just heard in committee, next the senate and finally the Governor. The bill is attached for you to read. You can follow the action being taken on this bill on the house of representatives website; http://www.myfloridahouse.gov/default.aspx

Go to Committees, then to Business and Consumer Affairs, on the right hand side go to proposed committee bills (PBC) there you will find the bill that I attached. On this page you can watch as the bill progresses.

Florida bakers please email the State Senate to let them know how important it is that they pass this bill, once they pass it, it goes to the Governor.

It would be great if Florida is the next state with The Cottage Food Act.

I want to thank everyone that wrote to their State Representative. I could not have done this alone and each and everyone of you should give yourself a pat on the back. Things happen in numbers and we are on our way to be able to have a home based business.

Denay thank you for posting my email here on the CC. I have been so busy that I was unable to post the GREAT news that the bill is moving forward. According to the latest update House Representative Bovo requested we take a food safety course. If anyone would like to see the bill you can email me at [email protected]

Happy Baking
Barbara

Barbara, thank you so so much for all your hard work! I was able to find the bill online and take a look at it, I'm not sure I really "get" all of it with the legal jargon, lol. Thanks for the update, I'll be keeping an interested eye on this to see how it does!
