From Recipe to Marketplace: Launching Your Food Product 


Do you have a culinary concept or food products already on the market? Are you running a food or drink establishment and want to launch your own food product? This information-packed workshop will help you understand how to take advantage of the trends in the growing $56 billion U.S. specialty foods market. Your food idea can become a marketplace reality!

Industry expert Terry Frishman will lead you through the key steps to effectively create, manufacture, package, distribute and market your delicious food products. Whether you own a food establishment or want to market your food concept, her dynamic, energetic approach will give you the confidence to realize that realizing or expanding your food ideas can be very doable! 

She provides valuable insights into how the food industry trends, along with your own personal values can determine what product to market and how to market it.

At the end of this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Summarize specialty food and natural food industries, and the top trends in those sectors

  • Discuss production, pricing and sales distribution strategies to enhance your brand
  • Outline criteria for promotion, sales materials and PR “first steps”
