And make sure to check out our “Hatch Your Farm & Food Business” in-person workshop on March 1, 2024. A collaboration with BC Farmers’ Markets!


If you’re starting a new food and beverage business, the Grow Your Food Business workshop is essential to keeping your business out of the weeds and growing to success.

You have a great idea or product, but before you dig into business, ask yourself these questions:

  • Can I scale it up?
  • Are my margins high enough?
  • Am I certain the market will accept my product?
  • What are the true costs of starting a successful food business?
  • Do I understand the labeling rules and regulations?

If you’re feeling overwhelmed and you don’t have all of the answers, don’t let that discourage you. Register for our one-day Grow Your Food Business workshop to understand your product’s true potential and know your metrics for success.

We’ll cover:

Business planning
Financial planning
Market access
Product development
Distribution
Trade, consumer & digital marketing

Testimonials from Past Participants

“I am in the very beginning stages of starting my business. Even though I have launched other successful businesses, I have yet to venture into the food space and was overwhelmed with where to start. I signed up for the workshop with reservations about what they would provide. I was pleasantly surprised to find it incredibly valuable and informative. I highly recommend this to anyone starting or working in the space. What an incredible group of people!”
