Niche foods are trending. Why? Because American palates are becoming more adventurous and demanding, leading to new business opportunities for farmers, gardeners, home cooks, bakers and others. Yet budding niche food entrepreneurs need help figuring out how to turn their hobbies into businesses. Helping them start and grow a profitable business operation enables them to serve the local community, export beyond the region, provide jobs, generate wealth and increase the overall quality of life. Discover how your community can leverage all the benefits that come along with niche foods.

Again a plateful of information about:

• How to assess your community’s potential to support a food industry cluster
• Essential elements of programs geared toward supporting food entrepreneurs
• How to other communities’ successes can inform your own strategies
