The Virginia Agriculture & Food Entrepreneurship Program is a two-day workshop series focused on food safety regulations, product development, business planning and marketing opportunities.

We invite people interested in starting or strengthening an agriculture or food-based business to this series of workshops that will address many common questions and give workshop participants practical information on starting and operating a food-based business in Virginia. This series will explain many of the common regulatory, business planning, and marketing issues and concerns that involve such a business.
