Food Entrepreneurs: Producing Economic Growth in Ontario’s Lake Country
Oct 26, 2015
Learn more about how to build your value-added food-related business. Join us for one of these upcoming free community seminars for food entrepreneurs at Georgian College:
These one-day events will include panel discussions by successful food entrepreneurs and industry experts on topics such as, raising capital, scaling up your business, marketing, distribution, and much more. Featured at each event, will be an exhibition of approximately 20-25 local food producers and processors who will showcase and sell their locally made products, provide samples and be able to share their unique entrepreneurial stories with attendees. A delicious lunch made using local ingredients will be another highlight of these events.
The community seminars for food entrepreneurs address the growing need for education and training in the area of food entrepreneurship development. Local, sustainable food has increasingly become a priority for consumers and, in response, municipalities recognize the benefit of value added agriculture/product development as a strategic imperative for economic growth.
Registration will open later this month. As this is an in-demand free event, priority will be given to local food/beverage entrepreneurs and aspiring artisan food processors/producers.
For more information and updates about registration please visit GeorgianCollege.ca/food-entrepreneurship and look for Food Entrepreneurship Ontario on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.
