If you’re considering starting a local food business or already in the early stages of development, then make plans to attend the Edible Startup Summit scheduled for November 17-18 at the American Family Center in Madison.
Co-hosted by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture’s Ag and Food Center and Dane County UW-Extension, the two-day summit offers a comprehensive and interactive education on what it takes to develop a local food business.
Local and regional experts will provide information on a wide range of topics, including: how to raise money to start or grow a food business; how to create a unique brand; current market trends; food safety requirements; how to get a product onto the grocery shelf; how to do a demo; how to work with a distributor; and business concept planning. Attendees will also have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with industry veterans, network with other entrepreneurs, and attend a field trip to food business incubators. Read the full story here.
