Small Producers

Small time producers are a BIG deal for the local food system. We can’t wait to help you find kitchen space, business assistance and connection to the greater food system.

Cottage Food Operation
Want to sell your home-kitchen-made creations to neighbors, through markets, or even get your product into stores?
The City of Long Beach’s Department of Health and Human Service licenses cottage food producers, both for direct and indirect sale.

As of July 2015, Long Beach Fresh is working with Long Beach Health to streamline the process, by gathering feedback from potential or current Cottage Food Operators via this survey.

Incubator Kitchens
Incubators can also be a great resource if you seek to scale up your good food production!
There are a few excellent kitchens in our region, with more on the way.
