Colorado cottage food producers can learn food safety and meet the requirements for the Colorado Cottage Food Act in a class from 1-4 p.m. Dec. 10 at the Chaffee County Fairgrounds meeting room, 10165 CR 120.

Students will learn which foods are permissible in Colorado’s Cottage Food Act, including the latest changes to the act, according to a press release.

They will also study ingredient labeling requirements, basic food safety – including proper hygiene, preventing cross-contact of food allergens, cross-contamination, temperature control for safe food preparation, storage, transport and sales – and how to find the resources you need to answer specific questions.

The program cost $30 and will be presented by Family Consumer Science CSU Extension agents Laura Krause of Pueblo County and Morgan Young of Chaffee County.

Register no later than Dec. 9.
