Hi, I am a newbie here, have found this site to be very informational. I want to start producing Granola from Domestic home based kitchen and want to sell online. Please guide me on 1)whether can granola be produced from domestic home based kitchen and can be sold online 2)what are the permits and registrations needed for this 3)what other things from procedural/governmental standpoint that needs to be met in order to do this.
You can sell granola with a cottage food business or a domestic kitchen. The domestic kitchen is a bit harder to implement. I’d recommend you start with a cottage food business, which does not require you to get a permit from the health or ag dept. You might need to get a business license from your local area, but it should be very simple to start. When your business is established and you want to put your granola on store shelves, then you can expand to a domestic kitchen license.
