The University of Maine Cooperative Extension will be offering its popular half-day workshop, Recipe to Market, which is a multi-disciplinary workshop that covers the business and food aspects of starting a food business in Maine. This workshop is intended for entrepreneurs and/or farmers interested in starting a home-based, specialty food business. This program does not cover herbal supplements or commercial processing (including beverage or juice manufacturing). Products that will be discussed, include but are not limited to, canned shelf stable products (jams/jellies/preserves, baked goods, condiments, salsas, sauces, dessert sauces), dry mixes, and candies/confections. Topics include the business basics, an overview of the product development process, licensing/regulations, and food safety.
Once you have registered, you will receive an email with a Zoom link a few days before the class.
