Take your food business idea to the next level

Are you a new food entrepreneur?

Have you dreamed about starting a food-based business but don’t know where to start?

Are you that person at the party that everyone always asks for a recipe?

What if you are selling at a farmers’ market or craft show and wonder what it would be like to see your product on the shelves of your local grocery store.

Now that dream can become a reality.

The Food Venture Boot Camp will give you the skills you need to launch your food business to the next level.

Led by food industry experts, chefs, product development experts and industry insiders, this interactive 12-week bootcamp will give you the foundation for understanding the industry and what you need to turn that great idea into a great product.

You will learn about regulations, develop a business plan and practice that perfect pitch that will help you turn that good idea into a delicious new product. This comprehensive course normally retails for $1000 per person, but thanks to funding provided by the province of Manitoba, is available for only $250.00 + tax.

Get ready to launch your food business to the next level!
