I would like to know how much of your book is about the legal part of the strategy.
So, how much of your book will also help people out of the US?... as laws as well as public expectations surely vary!

Hi Xisca:

The first several chapters of HOMEMADE FOR SALE get into the issues around various state laws.

Cottage foods, by definition, are STATE issues in the US. Canada has provincial laws which allow FARMERS to sell their cottage food products at farmers markets; nothing for non-farmers, at least not yet.

Outside of the US and Canada, the book could help in the how to start a food product business, generally, since we draw a lot upon our experiences in marketing and PR (we used to work for Leo Burnett Advertising in Chicago). You'd need to fill in what you can do legally in the country in which you live.

Here's to celebrating homemade greatness.

Best,
Lisa Kivirist and John Ivanko
