The demand for local food has risen over the last decade. However, a growing number of consumers also want more convenience built into their local food choices – flavorful options that are less perishable than farm-fresh products and require minimal preparation at home. This program will introduce Extension educators and small-business owners to general principles for successfully creating valueadded foods and where to find specific guidance at each developmental stage.

Speakers:

  • Gary Bullen, Extension Associate, Department of Agricultural & Resource Economics, North Carolina State University
  • Annette Dunlap, Food Business Specialist / Agribusiness Development, North Carolina Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services
  • Barry Nash, Seafood Technology and Marketing Specialist, North Carolina Sea Grant
  • Moderated by Joanna Massey Lelekacs, Extension Local Food Flagship Program Manager
