REGISTRATION

We're taking this annual workshop for new or aspiring food business operators online! This workshop is designed for farmers and others interested in home food processing for resale or beginning to sell new value-added products. Licensing requirements, food safety, liability insurance, labeling and organic certification requirements will all be covered. Normally, this is a full day, in-person workshop. This summer, it will be offered as two webinars and will include the same content as the in-person workshop.

Part 1: Beth Calder, Food Science Specialist from UMaine Cooperative Extension and Tom Cox, Consumer Protection Inspector from the State of Maine, will share information about certification and inspection processes.

Part 2: Corrine Wesh of MOFGA Certification Services will share information on organic certification, followed by a discussion led by several experienced food business owners in Maine, including a short virtual tour of the certified kitchen at Turtle Rock Farm in Brunswick. Lots of time for questions and conversation.
