This course is geared to small scale producers of preserves, sauces, dressings and vinegars, snacks, baked goods and other value added products.

Participants will be guided through the various steps from concept development to the market, with an emphasis on factors to consider for scaling up the product from the kitchen to commercial production. Speakers will provide examples to illustrate the steps and end goal. In addition to the aspects of product development, the course will cover product cost calculations, with real-world business examples.
