Licensing of CA Milk Handlers; Surety Bond Amount Required




California milk handlers are regulated by the state’s Department of Food and Agriculture. A condition of licensing is that you obtain a surety bond in the appropriate amount.

The amount of the surety bond you are required to purchase is determined by the average daily amount of purchase from milk producers.

The breakdown is as follows:

  • Less than 1000 gallons – $5000 surety bond;
  • 1000 to under 4000 gallons – $10,000 surety bond;
  • 4000 to under 8000 gallons – $15,000 surety bond;
  • 8000 gallons and more – $20,000 surety bond.

Therefore, the surety bond amount is between $5,000 and $20,000.
