Food Manufacturers, Warehouses, etc. (Wholesale Food Manufacturing and Storage)


Baker Lifting Tray

The Division of Environmental Health and Sustainability's Wholesale Food Manufacturers and Storage Program inspects and regulates the manufacture, distribution and storage of food in Colorado, which includes all food intended for human consumption. Firms in the program typically distribute their products to other manufacturers or retail locations such as restaurants or grocery markets. By using the division's regulations entitled "Current Good Manufacturing Practice in Manufacturing, Packing or Holding Human Food," the program provides oversight to ensure that all U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-regulated food products (excluding meat and poultry, which are regulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture - USDA) are manufactured, distributed and stored under safe and sanitary conditions. The program also requires all such firms to be approved through a registration process, and may conduct product label reviews.
