Permalink Food Innovation Team Aiding Minnesota Food Entrepreneurs with Safety, Licensing

Minnesota's new Food Innovation Team, a subcommittee of Minnesota's Food Safety and Defense Task Force, will help shepherd food entrepreneurs through the state's licensing process. The team will help resolve issues with new food licenses that are complex or unclear and will provide information on how the issues were resolved, to inform future license applicants. The Food Innovation Team was developed through a collaborative process that involved the food regulatory divisions of the Minnesota Department of Agriculture and Minnesota Department of Health, community groups including the Minnesota Farmers' Market Association and Renewing the Countryside, as well as University of Minnesota Extension and the Minnesota Institute for Sustainable Agriculture. The team's goal is to help state regulators accommodate new and innovative food business models while maintaining high food safety standards.
