How To Start A Food Business

August 10, 2016 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

So You Want To Start A Food Business
Do you have a favorite recipe that everyone raves about? Have you often thought about producing and selling it? Whether it is your homemade bread, sorbet, or banana pudding, everyone says it is the best they have ever tasted!

At FoodLab we’ve worked with numerous food entrepreneurs and we know that bringing a product to market can be exciting and rewarding, but we also know that it will be time consuming and hard work.

That’s why we created this “How To Series”. We developed the classes in this series to help you get started as a food entrepreneur. We’ve gathered successful food business owners along with industry experts in the food industry to guide you through the process and to help you define your start-up and growth decisions in a supportive environment that gives you comfort and ease.

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.

Look what we have in store for you!
