Food & Business


Educational resources are available for emerging and existing entrepreneurs and their employees. General business education helps food business owners and managers plan and address management, marketing, and financial issues.  Food industry education and workforce development training adds learning opportunities for specific food businesses, such as food retail, food service, food processing and distribution.  Some examples of specific topics include farmers’ markets and the Ohio MarketMaker.  Food safety is an important topic from production through processing, packaging, distribution and other business practices.  Employee health and wellness education is also an important factor to consider for food business education.
