Have a great idea for a food business?

Want to learn how to turn your winning recipe into a successful venture?

Then you need to attend this 3 hour seminar which will provide an overview of the things you need to know when starting a food business. 

Topics will address important areas every entrepreneur should consider:

  • The Basics of Starting a Business
  • Developing your Business Plan

And highlight the keys to creating a successful food business:

  • Branding your Company Identity
  • Developing your Products
  • An Introduction to Food Industry Regulations
  • Additional Resources

A local food producer will join us to share the path and pitfalls of setting up production and provide tips on how to expand beyond the local market. A food service expert will also spend some time recounting his experience building a successful restaurant and will provide unique insights into the food service industry.

If you're someone interested in marketing a family recipe, an individual with a product idea or concept, a producer considering adding value to an agricultural product or even a chef exploring your possibilities, this seminar will provide you with the information and resources to take the next step!
