Well, it's no surprise they made it legal. I know of quite home processors who already were doing it.

Some of those home processors received Cease & Desist orders from Ag & Mkts. This rule had been unevenly enforced. Mail order or internet sales are still not allowed, but some sites have shopping carts and order forms. In our hard economic times, I'm just grateful the state allows home-based food businesses...

NO!!! Please reread my original post. It states that Ag & Mkts now allows website presence for communication and promotional purposes.

This change, which is wonderful, now lets home processors have a legal online presence. Maybe in the future they will make more changes, but for now all other regulations are still in place.

Use the link in my first post. That page explains the home processor exemption. It's an exemption from needing a commercial license so most home kitchens don't have to meet the regulations imposed on commercial kitchens.

But there are restrictions on allowed products and where you may sell them. Review the page and if you have any questions, call the NYC office (71icon_cool.gif 722-2876.

Good luck!
