Specialty food, artisan food, handcrafted food...never before has interest in these types of food products been so high. As the food industry undergoes a rapid shift in consumer desire and purchasing behavior, there's never been a better time to start and grow that food business of your dreams. But how to start a food business and how to overcome the challenges and hurdles you will undoubtably face as you grow your food business is another issue entirely. Join Jennifer Lewis of Small Food Business as she talks with food industry experts and food entrepreneurs just like you about the questions business owners face. Regardless of whether you're a mobile food entrepreneur, you sell your packaged food products wholesale to retailers, you operate a farmers' market stand, or you prepare food in your home kitchen under your state's cottage food laws, I hope you'll join us as we work to build a stronger artisan food community.
