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.


Sessions are being held around the state. 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 the hosting extension office. This program is open to anyone interested in food enterprises.

The University of Maryland Extension programs are open to any person and will not discriminate against anyone because of race, age , sex, color, sexual orientation, mental or physical disability, religion, ancestry, national origin, marital status, political affiliation, national origin, genetic information, and gender identity or expression.
