NACCHO & CDC Food Safety Sharing Session: Microenterprise Home Kitchen Operations

Sep 08, 2022 | Olivia Turay

A Microenterprise Home Kitchen Operation (MHKO) is a type of food facility that is operated by the resident of a private home. Food can be stored, prepared, and served to customers at the MHKO, similar to a restaurant. Although a newer type of food facility, MHKOs have started to take shape in many jurisdictions across the country. This webinar will focus on the various laws nationwide that permit MHKOs, and similar cottage food operations, and discuss the challenges MHKOs pose for local retail food regulatory programs.

This webinar will take place on November 4, 2:00 - 3:00 PM ET.
