There are several different license types that you can apply for through the Department of Agriculture based on the type of food that you produce.
As part of the application process, Food Forge will be inspected by the Department of Agriculture. They will arrange this directly with you. The inspector will provide an inspection report to you, which you will be provided to Food Forge as proof of passing. This inspection report allows you to operate legally. Later, when you are issued a license certificate, you will need to provide a copy to Food Forge.
All licensed businesses using our commercial kitchen facility must provide a certificate of insurance (General Liability and Product Liability) covering themselves and their business for $1 million per occurrence and $2 million in aggregate for both general and product.
