Status: Approved

1.Each food vendor shall hold either a 2019 Colorado Mobile retail food license (food trucks, push carts, trailers); or, a 2019 Larimer County Temporary Event license (all vendors in a tent, even licensed restaurants, need a separate temp event license for Special Event sales).

2. It is understood that Scrumpy's will be offering bulk juicing at the event. Per the description, apples will be pressed, pasteurized and bottled on-site. Scrumpy's staff are very familiar with proper food handling and cider processing, but there are some important items to keep in mind for on-site beverage processing/food handling:
-Good Agricultural Practices should be encouraged to reduce the potential for contamination of the apples used for making juice. Please only process apples in good condition. Apples that have fallen on the ground or that are visibly contaminated with bird feces, animal feces, or other gross debris/damage should not be harvested/used for juicing.
-Apples should be rinsed.
-Those involved in the processing shall wash their hands before engaging.
-Please ensure that all juice/cider bottles are washed, rinsed and sanitized before filling.
-It is strongly recommended that the finished product have a label that requires the juice to be refrigerated for safety so the customers do not think the product is shelf stable.

Please note, outbreaks of illness associated with consumption of fruit juice have been a growing public health problem since the early 1990s. Serious outbreaks of foodborne illness, including Salmonella, E.coli 0157:H7, and Clostridium, have been traced to drinking fruit juice, vegetable juice, and cider that has not been treated to kill harmful bacteria. Since 1999, the FDA has required juice manufacturers to place warning information on product containers about the health risks of drinking untreated juice or cider. In this case, Scrumpy's will be pasteurizing the juice. Pasteurized juice is heated to a high temperature for a short time before it is sold. By pasteurizing juice, present pathogens shall be reduced by a minimum of a 5 log reduction.

3. It is our understanding that the on-site restrooms are supported by a septic system which is not capable of supporting 500 guests, therefore portable restrooms are required. An attendance of 500 people over a 6hr event that serves alcohol, should provide a minimum of 7 portable restrooms and 2 handwash stations.

4. Potable water shall be made available to event guests by drinking fountains, commercial bottled water, or from approved water dispensing containers. Drinking water must come from an approved public supply.

5. Trash cans shall be distributed throughout the site, especially next to portable restroom area, food vending and seating areas. For most events, the equivalent of one 20 gallon container per 10 people is appropriate. It is recommended to also provide receptacles for recyclables which have signs/pictures of what can be recycled at the event.

6. Since the site parking areas are not paved and consist of vegetation and soil, dust control practices should be implemented to minimize dust. This could include posting signs to limit vehicles to very slow speeds like 10-15 mph, and lightly spraying water in the parking areas to prevent dust from rising.

7. A chicken coop is identified on the site plan. We strongly recommend a handwash station if this area if it will be accessible to the public with live animals. As many know, animals including chickens, geese and ducks, can pass on harmful pathogens/germs to people, especially kids, such as E. coli and Salmonella.
