Food Safety Class for Cottage Industry Entrepreneurs

Title image memeThe University of Delaware Cooperative Extension is offering a Food Safety Training on Saturday, April. 14, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Kent County Cooperative Extension office, 69 Transportation Circle, in Dover. The fee is $50.

The 7-hour class will be taught by Kathleen Splane, UD Family & Consumer Science extension educator.

“This training meets the food safety requirements by the State of Delaware for those individuals who want to prepare non-hazardous foods in their own home for sale locally,” Splane said.

Examples of non-hazardous foods are baked goods such as cookies, muffins, cakes, breads, jams, jellies and preserves and candy.

The training, certification, and inspections of kitchens are required under Delaware regulations adopted in 2016 and apply to individuals, and small business cottage industries who wish to process non-potentially hazardous foods in residential kitchens for sale to the public.

The University of Delaware Cooperative Extension is an equal opportunity provider.

To register for the training, please email Jan Unflat  or call 302-730-4000.
