Food Entrepreneur Assistance Program seminars set in Lincoln, Scottsbluff


The Food Processing Center has scheduled three seminars in its nationally recognized Food Entrepreneur Assistance Program in August and October.

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln program includes a one-day seminar--From Recipe to Reality--that helps budding entrepreneurs start a food business. The final seminars for 2009 are scheduled Aug. 15 and Oct. 3 in Lincoln and Oct. 24 in Scottsbluff.

"The seminar helps attendees understand the basics of starting a food industry including the challenges they will need to overcome," said Jill Gifford, manager of the center's Food Entrepreneur Assistance Program. "In one day entrepreneurs will gain valuable insight so they can determine if starting a food business is the right choice."

Seminar topics include market research, product development, packaging, labeling, pricing, product introduction, promotional materials, food safety, and legal and business structure issues.

Following the seminar, participants may choose to enter the "From Product to Profit" phase of the program. During this phase entrepreneurs receive individualized and confidential assistance from Food Processing Center food scientists and business consultants with the development of their own business venture.
