Q: Can I keep an ingredients list in a folder versus on each item?

A: No. The cottage food exemption law, Minnesota Statutes 28A.152, Sec. 7. subdivision 1, (1)(i) requires cottage food offered for sale to be labeled to accurately reflect:

  • the name and the registration number or address of the individual preparing and selling the​ food,
  •  the date on which the food was prepared,
  •  the ingredients and any possible allergens,​ and
  •  the statement "These products are homemade and not subject to state inspection.";\
Attach the label to the product’s container for packaged items. For items displayed and sold individually such at a farmer’s market or community event, give the customer a label with the required information.
