Successful Value-Added Food Product Development for Farm and New Food Businesses: Managing Food Quality and Safety 2023

November 29 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm


Are you a farmer diversifying into value-added production or an entrepreneur developing new and exciting products? Do you have questions about how to integrate food safety and quality into the development of a value-added food product? If so, this is the program for you!

This course will address the key attributes of formulating a product from concept to commercialization including food safety and scaling up considerations. You will learn about the food science basics, key elements required for product labeling, and an overview of key regulatory requirements for small and emerging food businesses, such as entrepreneurs and local food processors. 

Registration Fee: This program, including office hours and virtual sessions, is $50. We do not want finances to be a barrier to attendance so CISA offers sliding scale pricing to ensure anyone can attend.
