Workshop detail

You have either made the decision or are considering opening a food business.   Do you know what regulations you must adhere to in the food industry in Massachusetts? This workshop will take you beyond great recipes.

The Worcester Regional Food Hub Kitchen provides a variety of services for start-up and existing food entrepreneurs, including hourly kitchen rentals, technical assistance, workshops, and support. It is designed to bolster a robust regional food system. The Food Hub’s mission is to increase local food access and consumption and recruit, retain, and incubate local food entrepreneurs, collectively building healthy, sustainable, and just communities.

What rules and regulations do you need comply with in order to legally serve and sell your food?
In this workshop you will learn about resources, how to obtain your ServSafe Manager and Allergen Awareness certifications, getting products tested, writing standard operating procedures and other considerations and requirements such as inspections of your facility.
Learn what you need to know beyond your business plan.
