    I didn't know where on the forum to post this question, so I decided here...

    I'm dabbling with jarring and selling my restaurants "house spice" and was curious about the legalities. What type of jar should I use and where can I get them cheap and in bulk? Do I need an expiration date? Lisencing?

    Thanks again...

    All depends on where you are - what does your local "food police" expect.

    Labeling and expiry dates are dictated by the market and/or food inspection agencies.

    For bottles I have used this company before.  http://www.specialtybottle.com/

    Wasn't commercial level stuff but large quantities for friends and relatives.
