Minnesota Cottage Food Producer’s Association (MNCFPA) is the first association of its kind paving the way for CFPs in Minnesota and for other states to follow. MNCFPA’s focus is to increase communication with fellow CFPs, create additional industry focused educational opportunities, and provide a strong united voice at the State Capitol.
In 2015, Minnesota State Legislature amended laws further opening the door to the Cottage Food Industry here in Minnesota. It was exciting to have expanded the cottage food opportunities here in our great state; however, we soon realized more work needed to be done.
Therefore, a group of cottage food advocates decided to form Minnesota Cottage Food Producer’s Association to further legitimize our industry. MNCFPA believes that our organization unites and gives CFPs a unified voice when addressing topics that impact our industry, lobbing our lawmakers to strengthen the cottage food industry, and the opportunity to secure group purchasing power.
