Jackson County MarketReady Producer Training

Date: 
Monday, May 15, 2017 - 10:00am

MarketReady seeks to educate local food suppliers in order to help them succeed in today’s local markets. We teach those who sell agricultural products about how to establish an effective business and food safety strategy in order to succeed.  If you're interested in selling to restaurants, grocers/wholesalers/retailers, and schools MarketReady can help you. Also, those who just want to explore ways to improve their sales skills, are considering or developing a new food business, and those currently selling to these markets who may want to improve their current business relationships can utilize this program.  

This MarketReady training will be from 10:00AM - 4:00PM at the Jackson County Regional Food Center and will cover the Restaurant sales, Grocery/ Wholesale/Retail sales, Farm to School, and Food Safety and Quality Assurance business functions. Admission is $25.00 which will cover training materials, additional resources, lunch and refreshments.

A panel of buyers assembled with local and regional buyers and technical support professionals will build upon what will be covered in the training. The training includes information about KDA (the Kentucky Department of Agriculture) programs as well as resources from other state and federal agencies like Kentucky Center for Agriculture and Rural Development, Local Health departments and the Food Systems Innovation Center.
