Starting a Small Food Company - Understanding Government Regulations

On Demand
Until Mar 31
Topic: Start-up Assistance

The Clatsop SBDC, in collaboration with North Coast Food Web, is hosting this free workshop to help local entrepreneurs get their food processing businesses off the ground.

Have an idea for a food business?
Want to pivot your existing farm or restaurant to sell processed foods?

Food entrepreneurship is exciting and helps drive our North Coast economy, but it can be tricky to understand licensing, regulations and food safety measures.

Join us for this workshop with local food processing expert Barbara Cripe, who serves as the Oregon Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety Inspector for Clatsop County.

This workshop is free thanks to CARES Act Funding.

Please submit any questions you have to, and a SBDC Business Advisor will contact you.

Clatsop Community College SBDC workshops are not eligible for continuing education credits and we will not be able to issue any certificates of completion or provide similar statements or documentation.

Speaker(s): Barbara Cripe, Food Safety Inspector for Clatsop County, Oregon Department of Agriculture Barb has more than two decades of experience working in the Food Safety Program with the Oregon Department of Agriculture. The vision of the Oregon Department of Agriculture is to ensure healthy natural resources, environment, and economy for Oregonians now and in the future through inspection and certification, regulation, and promotion of agriculture and food.
