Event Details

Are you a CPG brand that has outgrown your commercial kitchen, but you can't find a cost-effective manufacturing solution to scale your volume? Join us for this combination education session + resource fair about standing up your own manufacturing facility (and no, that doesn't necessarily mean buying a building). The session will begin with information sharing on building or building out a "facility," including space requirements, capacity needs, processing needs, human/food safety, product quality management, storage, ingredient and finished good management, and more. Following the learning period, connect with consultants and resource providers at the Resource Fair for everything you will need to scale your manufacturing: Realtors, Financing, Processing, Equipment, Build Out, Management, and more. Attendees should expect to walk away from this workshop with a clear understanding of "what it takes" to stand up a manufacturing space that meets your growing company's needs.
