Whether you have already jumped into the artisan specialty food business and are looking to expand, just getting started, or have an old family recipe that others have encouraged you to market, this 3-hour workshop is designed to answer your questions and point you in the right direction.

Topics covered include feasibility studies, licenses, fees & certifications necessary to get started, production and capitalization options, business planning, current and future industry trends, and navigating the sales/marketing/distribution networks. Cost includes handouts with resources, worksheets and references.

Learn the ups & downs, ins & outs of this exciting but challenging industry from a 35-year veteran, Anni Minuzzo. Anni owned a wholesale baking company for over 20 years and has a broad network of professional connections that give her a long lens on the food and beverage business. In addition to being on the staff of several Northern California SBDCs, Anni has consulted privately for several food companies, worked on a USDA grant in Sonoma County, and is a certified legal expert for the food industry.
