SB 572: Cottage Food Freedom 2019

SB 572 has passed the Texas Legislature and will soon make its way to Governor Abbott's desk for signature! As long as he does not veto the bill, it will go into effect September 1, 2019. 

SB 572 is the most important step in improving the cottage food law that we’ve seen since 2013. These provisions affect ALL cottage food producers. 

This bill:

  • Removes the location restriction. It allows the sale of cottage foods directly to consumers anywhere in the state.
  • Allows internet sales as long as one portion of the sale takes place in person.
  • Allows ANY non-potentially hazardous food (in other words, it gets rid of the specific list that we are currently operating with).
  • Adds pickled fruits and vegetables including pickled beets and carrots.
  • Adds canned goods that are acidified
  • Adds fermented vegetables
  • Adds frozen fruits and vegetables
  • DOES NOT ADD any new regulatory burdens for cottage food producers. 

YOUR VOICE MATTERS. Call Governor Abbott at 512-463-2000 and tell him that you want him to sign SB 572!
