Q: How do I get a license in Wisconsin to make my own energy drinks for sale. Where do I apply for this?
To legally manufacture and sell your own energy drinks in Wisconsin, you must navigate several steps and regulations. Start by developing your energy drink recipe while ensuring it complies with food safety standards. Establish a legal business entity if you haven't already, such as an LLC or corporation. Obtain a food processing license from the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) and ensure your facility meets health and safety standards.
Compliance with federal and state labeling requirements, including those enforced by the U.S. FDA, is essential. Your product's label must accurately display ingredients, nutritional information, and any health claims. Your production facility should undergo inspections to maintain cleanliness and sanitary conditions.
