With continued interest in local and regional foods, there are emerging opportunities to advance food innovations and entrepreneurs. On Thursday, December 6 at the Virginia Farm to Table Conference, there will be two workshop sessions on the ins and outs of packaging and bottling local and regional foods. The sessions will be coordinated by Virginia Food Works and Virginia Cooperative Extension and will feature Joell Eifert director of Virginia Tech’s Food Innovations Program. Dr. Theresa Nartea extension specialist with Virginia State University will join Joell and talk about different aspects of marketing and promoting your food products.
If you have a product sample that you would like Joell to test for you, please bring a sample with you to the workshops!
