Workshop:  How to Start a Food Business in Florida

For the past decade, the food business in America has been changing, as more and more people have started their own small-scale food production companies to sell to farmers markets, restaurants and other local businesses. Since the passage of the Cottage Food Law in Florida, the number of small food businesses has been on a steep increase.  But to run a successful business in a competitive food market, you’ll need a good business plan and basic understanding about food processing, packaging, marketing and regulatory requirements. UF/IFAS Extension’s Food Entrepreneurship program can help get you started on your journey to success.

How to Start a Food Business in Florida was a one-day workshop that provided general information on food safety and quality, basic food science, business planning, and federal and state regulatory requirements for food business.
