What are the requirements for making food products to sell?

I want to bottle and sell barbecue sauce.

First the product has to be good. And everyone needs to be honest on how it tastes. The health department will get involved in the area that it is made.

You will have to have inspections of the place you produce and package the product and be certified as healthy and so forth. However, if you intend for this to be a small business out of your home and to sell your product at farmer's markets, you can get around many rules.

To sell food products in the United States, you must get permission from the FDA for each product that you bring to market. This requires that you file an application showing that you have appropriate quality controls in place for producing and distributing your products, and that you properly react to complaints.

MUST follow approved canning methods for jams and jellies. This includes processing the jars in a hot water bath, using regulation jars and lids, etc.
