Minnesota Cottage Food Law—Non Potentially Hazardous Food

Public Policies

As of July 1, 2015, individuals can sell non-potentially hazardous (NPH) foods made in their home kitchens, without a license (Minnesota Statute 28A.152). NPH foods are foods that do not support the rapid growth of bacteria that would make people sick when held outside of refrigerated temperatures: these are the types of foods the 2015 Minnesota Cottage Foods Law exempts from licensing. MFMA has worked with the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, the Minnesota Department of Health, and the University of Minnesota Extension Food Safety Team to compile this list.
