SB 572: Cottage Food Freedom 2019

SB 572 has been signed by Governor Abbott and will become law on 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 (YES this means salsa if the pH is 4.6 or lower)
  • Adds fermented vegetables
  • Adds frozen fruits and vegetables
  • DOES NOT ADD any new regulatory burdens for cottage food producers.
