The GDA Food Safety Division issues licenses to food businesses including processors and manufacturers, wholesalers, warehouses, re-packers, community kitchens, grocery stores, convenience stores, mobile food units, and other related types of establishments.
This application covers people who are processing non-hazardous foods in a home kitchen for sale directly to the consumer/end user (no wholesale or retail sales). Learn more by visiting our Cottage Food
