Event Type: 

Whether it’s making gourmet jams or jellies, baking bread and cakes, catering festive events or creating and packaging special dinners for one, food related businesses are becoming increasingly popular as a way to earn a living (or to add to your income). The cook’s creative flair, combined with business practicality will succeed even in tough economic times, if the enterprise is given the appropriate research and planning before its launch.
University of Maryland Extension’s Food for Profit workshop takes you step by step through the information necessary to start and run a small food product business.  Although appropriate for any food business owners who want to develop their venture proactively, the workshop is especially directed to individuals who will be making and packing their products for resale.
Food for Profit is a very practical session, providing information that you will be able to use immediately to ensure that your business starts out and grows in a way that matches your vision and goals. Guiding food entrepreneurs through the initial steps to start a business, this workshop combines educational presentations, guest speakers and a highly interactive learning environment to address: getting started, regulations, developing a plan, food safety, packaging and financing.

University of Maryland Extension in Howard County is proud to present Food for Profit on November 18th at our Ellicott City office from 9am until 4pm. The tuition cost of $40 per person includes all materials and lunch.  Pre-registration is required one week prior to the event, and may be accomplished on-line at, or by calling 410-313-1908.
