Creating a food product involves many steps. From actual production of a product, to labeling, and later, selling to the consumer – there are countless steps involved throughout the process.
The Center for Innovative Food Technology (CIFT) and the Agricultural Incubator Foundation (AIF) will make sense of it all by hosting a free, informative seminar, “Getting your Food Product to the Market,” Thurs., Feb. 3 from 4 – 6 p.m. at the AIF, north of Bowling Green, OH. The seminar is open to anyone – in particular small food manufacturers, market managers, farmers, growers, or even individuals who are thinking of producing and selling a value-added food product.
Guests can learn how to get a food product ready for sale at farm stands, farmers markets and other retail sectors from various experts in the industry:
- Lowell Lufkin, Ohio Department of Agriculture’s Division of Food Safety
- Deb Decristo, Lucas County Health Department
- Donna Puehler, former president of Toledo Farmers Market, and current vendor at Toledo and Ann Arbor Farmers Markets
- William Zemnicki, former president of Toledo Farmers Market, and assistant market master at Worthington Farmers Market (near Columbus).
The AIF is located at 13737 Middleton Pike (St. Rt. 582) in Bowling Green. Directions: I-75 to St. Rt. 582, exit 187 (Luckey/Haskins). Travel west on St. Rt. 582 approximately 2.2 miles (AIF is located on the south side of St. Rt. 582).
