Learning how a food broker can increase sales will be the topic of discussion at a seminar hosted by the Center for Innovative Food Technology (CIFT), Monday, Mar. 13, 2017 from 5 – 6:30 p.m. at the Northwest Ohio Cooperative Kitchen (NOCK).
Howard George, president, and Dan Shortt, sales manager, Howard F. George Food Brokers, will thoroughly explain such areas as the role of a food broker, how a broker can grow a business, reasons to hire a broker, expectations throughout the process, going to market, length of commitment, and more, in this highly interactive seminar.
Attendees with an approved, labeled commercial food product are encouraged to bring a sample that will later be evaluated by Mr. George at no cost.
These processing procedures will be explained within the NOCK – a kitchen-based setting that educates and advises entrepreneurs interested in starting a food business. Food-related business owners, aspiring entrepreneurs, and those who are producing a product to sell at markets and/or other retail establishments are encouraged to attend.
The cost is just $25/person or $20/person for group of two or more (pay online, or cash/check at the door) which includes great networking opportunities and light refreshments. Advanced registration is preferred. The NOCK/AIF is located at 13737 Middleton Pike (St. Rt. 582) in Bowling Green, Ohio.
