No person shall manufacture frozen foods, mix, ice cream mix, mix base, or ice cream mix base for resale, without first having obtained a license therefor from the Department of Agriculture, which is charged with the duty and power of administering and enforcing the provisions of sections 32.56 to 32.64. The commissioner shall establish standards in the manner provided in section 31.10, and acts amendatory thereof, for frozen foods for which no Minnesota standards exist. In the exercise of the authority to establish standards for frozen foods, the commissioner shall adopt definitions and standards of identity established pursuant to the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act insofar as said definitions and standards do not conflict with law. Nothing in sections 32.56 to 32.64 shall apply to educational institutions or to charitable, fraternal or religious organizations not regularly engaged in the manufacture of frozen foods, mix, ice cream mix, mix base, or ice cream mix base or to private homes manufacturing for their own use.
