MADISON – 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 Nov. 17-18 at the American Family Center in
Co-hosted by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and
Consumer Protection'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.
“Past attendees have been impressed with what amounts to a very
comprehensive education on what it takes to develop a local food business,”
said Kietra Olson, DATCP local foods program manager. “Whether you’re just
getting started with your business, or ready to take it to the next level, the
Edible Startup Summit can be a great source of information.”
