Scale Up! Farmers' Markets to Retail

November 13, 2019 - 7:30am to 10:00am

Simcoe County is rich with creative businesses producing quality, locally sourced products on a small scale; typically distributing from home or farmers’ markets. But, what does it take to Scale Up?

This panel-style presentation will provide input from Hewitts Farm Market, and Foodland’s Local Development Team about what they require when considering adding new products to their shelves.

Also, hear from the local owner of Yellofruit, an innovative plant-based, non-dairy frozen dessert that has navigated this journey to successfully grow into broader retail markets.

Labeling & packaging, expanding production, hiring staff, wholesaling vs. retailing, and many other considerations will be discussed, plus there will be lots of time for Q&A’s!

Don’t miss this opportunity to Scale Up!
