I spoke with the local health department about Raw Juice / Unpastuerized Juice. Here are some notes…
Must be (State of CT)
1.Store Front / Brick n Motor
2.Direct to Consumer
3.No Bottling or Ready to go Bottling
4.Low PH fruit or vege
5.Temperature control for safety
6.Carrot not allowed ( Case Botulism in the past)
7. Must have a HACCAP plan
When i mentioned that the overall population are aiming to make better food and beverage choices,how is the local health department going to support that or in fact when was the last time all that information been “updated”.
She noted that there should be some changed pertaining to Unpastuerized Juices but we have not got any followup or duration of the process.

Can a HACCP plan “override and waive” these requirement when it comes to Unpastuerized or Raw or Unpastuerized Juices. I strongly believe there is a way .
