Legislation to expand the sales cap for cottage food operators and remove the prohibition on advertising online has been signed by Gov. Tate Reeves.

House Bill 326 will raise the sales cap from $20,000, which was among the lowest in the country, to $35,000. Specific language has also been added to the law that will allow cottage food operators to advertise on social media sites like Facebook and Instagram. Previously, the Department of Health had sent cease and desist letters to individuals who posted pictures of their food online.

The bill, authored by Rep. Casey Eure, passed both the House and Senate unanimously.

Cottage food operators are still prohibited from selling products online, by mail, or at retail.
