02:06 PM -- SB16-058



Senator Hill introduced Senate Bill 16-058, concerning Colorado farm to consumer sales. Senator Hill presented strike below amendment L.006 (Attachment A) to the bill and amendment L.005 (Attachment B) to amendment L.006. The bill amends the Colorado Cottage Foods Act, which allows homemade food producers to sell certain food products directly to consumers. Current law divides the types of products that may be sold by producers into two tiers and specifies the foods that comprise each tier. The bill eliminates the tiered system and the State Board of Health's authority to make rules governing the production of tier two foods, which currently consist of pickled vegetables. The bill expands the types of foods that may be sold by producers under the Cottage Foods Act to include other nonpotentially hazardous foods and encourages, rather than mandates, a producer to take a food safety course.
