Homemade Baked Goods May Now Be Sold Legally In South Carolina

September 7, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
South Carolina has joined 25 other states in enacting a cottage food law legalizing the sale of homemade candy and baked goods. The measure was signed into law in June, reversing a long-term prohibition enforced by the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control. Home bakers may now sell “nonpotentially hazardous” products as long as sanitary, packaging and labeling guidelines are followed. The old law required baked goods to be produced in a DHEC-approved kitchen. The law still bans the sale of homemade jams and jellies, meat or vegetable products, and anything that would require refrigeration.
