Thanks to everyone who wrote to and called Assemblymembers, Senators and the Governor! Your efforts were instrumental in getting the bill passed through the various steps in the legislature. Now that Governor Brown has signed AB 1616, it will go into effect in January. In the meantime, we at SELC will be hard at work creating legal resources for small-scale food enterprises. Please support our continued work for CA cottage food here on the Cottage Food Law page.
See our Food page for more info about what we’re up to. We at SELC are celebrating this victory and can’t wait to buy homemade food and support small-scale food enterprises with legal resources to start cottage food operations.
