What Else?

Besides working with food product companies and their support networks, we offer services to all other stakeholders in the food system. If you're a chef looking to incorporate local ingredients into your menu, we can help you come up with a plan that fits your needs. We are available for speaking engagements large and small, public or private. We have spoken to community organizations, private businesses, and in classrooms at elementary schools and universities. We can also help you get the word out about your business by supporting your social media, crafting press releases, and other writing services.
