Overview

Location:


Room 120 FAPC


 


Workshop Description:


In 2013, the State of Oklahoma passed into law the Home Bakery Act. Confusion exists in correct adherence to this law.  Additionally, selling food to the general public comes with expectations towards food safety the home-baker may not fully be aware. Since home bakeries are not required to be inspected or licensed, home-bakers would not be inclined to take expensive and time-consuming preventative control workshops. Currently, no instruction is offered in the state to educate home-bakers on best practices, food safety and liability issues that can come with producing a baked food.


FAPC, along with the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry, will offer one-day courses covering topics of good manufacturing practices, allergens/cross contamination and food safety/microbiology.  A computer worksheet will also be offered to the attendees, aiding in record-keeping and calculations of income, with decision tools to determine if the baker is capable of moving on to a brick-and-mortar facility.
