Vanessa, the food safety certificate that Sonia was referring to is probably a food manager certificate. However, CFOs in Florida aren’t required to get food safety training. If you’d like basic training, you can look up a food handler training course.November 8, 2016 at 4:41 pm #36544
There is not sale tax on decorated cakes ordered from Publix bakeries. At least, not in Florida.

I want to sell fermented foods I make at home. Kimchi, Sauerkraut, etc. According to this, I can not sell those under the cottage law. What must I do to sell these items at farmers markets? I have pleanty of friends with commercial kitchens, but I doubt they would let me take up space in Thierry restaurant to ferment for a month or more…. Help me!March 3, 2017 at 2:39 pm #37608
Ed, as far as I know, you would need to use a commercial kitchen to do this. I know it seems impractical but it is the same process that other companies that produce fermented foods use.October 30, 2017 at 8:39 am #39770
I am interested in selling home made granola, energy bars and possibly muffins. Do I need to charge them sales tax? I understand that these products are covered by the cottage food operations law. If anyone could guide me, it will be great.
Thanks a lot.

Hi, I bake from home and I just got my business licence. My question is how do I file tax later?July 5, 2018 at 9:52 am #41350
I have a Cottage Bakery and I am very happy to know of the amendment for Florida Cottage law to increase the annual gross sales limit of cottage foods operations from $15,000 to $50,000.
My question is…what kind of receipts should I save when buying materials to use for tax purposes ?
Can I use Publix, Cake Depot, Michael’s , etc., stores where weekly I buy products for my business to declare taxes?October 5, 2018 at 9:41 am #42284
