Taster Program

A two-week workshop series aimed at providing a practical roadmap to those looking to turn an idea into a viable food business. The taster program is an excellent way to go back to the basics of food business.

Full Program

A four-month intensive program that incubates early-stage food businesses or those seriously considering launching. The program offers weekly workshops, online resources, placements, field trips, mentoring, and access to an ongoing suite of support services.

 

Food business is world's apart from any other industry, and there are a lot of things that I learned here that would be impossible to have known otherwise. If I didn't join FoodLab I am confident I would have failed. The gold of FoodLab is the people and their generosity.
