COVID -19 has had a lot of negative impacts on our lives and the economy, but one silver lining has been strong interest in and demand for locally produced foods. Local producers have quickly learned how complicated it can be to get their products "on the shelf" and also compete with established brands and products.
One area that is particularly challenging for local producers is Packaging - the safe & efficient packing, packaging and labeling of their products. This critical element in retail food sales both from a regulatory standpoint, and a consumer marketing standpoint.
CCE Lewis and Harvest NY continue the Local Food Sustainability Series with a virtual workshop covering the basics of Packaging and Labeling, and also the "In's and Out's" of co-packing (when someone else process and packages your product).
Lindsay Pashow - Ag Business Development & Marketing Specialist and Anika Gianforte -Dairy Processing Specialist, team up to take you through the basics!
While there is no cost to this program, we do need you to pre-register.
