How To Apply For A Food Establishment License

May 25, 2016 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

At FoodLab Detroit, we created this “How To Series” to help you get started as a food entrepreneur.

It is very important to understand the proper steps needed to turn a recipe into a profitable product. You can’t simply make a food item in your home kitchen, place it in a container, and start selling it. You need to follow the many production and labeling requirements that exist to keep consumers safe. You need to understand the markets you want to enter. You need to get your product to those markets. You need to know how to manage your inventory. You need to determine the correct selling price for your product and much more.

For starters, we’ve created this checklist, please click here, http://svy.mk/1TfuhHy, to give you some things to think about. Please fill out the checklist before your first class so that we have a better idea on how to best serve your needs.

This workshop covers basic State of Michigan regulation and licensing requirements for establishing and producing food items for sale. This workshop will address different license types, licensing requirements, governing regulations and further informational resources involved in food sales to consumers, retail and institutions. There will be time for questions and answers during the workshop.

Note: Free parking is located in the lot on Cass and Amsterdam streets
