Penn State University Extension to Offer the Food for Profit Workshop at the Stourbridge Project
Great recipes make traditions, artisan foods and convenience trends are here to stay. Are you a food entrepreneur that has an idea for a product? Penn State Extension’s Food for Profit is a one-day interactive workshop to help you work through the maze of local and state regulations, food safety issues, marketing and business management viewpoints. All of which must be considered in setting up a successful commercial food business. Penn State is committed to affirmative action, equal opportunity, and the diversity of its workforce.
How Can Food For Profit Help Me With My Business Idea?
The Food for Profit workshop will take you step-by-step through the start-up entrepreneurial process. It will provide you with the information and skills to assess if your idea has potential to become something that will sell at a profit. Conducting a feasibility study (to see if your idea is a good business idea), performing marketing research, and beginning to draft a business plan are a few of the concrete tools taught by certified instructors and business experts. By attending this class, you will learn how to evaluate the opportunities on paper before you look for funding or take action (saving money and time).
