Shelby County MarketReady Training
MarketReady seeks to educate local food suppliers to help them succeed in today’s local markets. We teach those who sell agricultural products about how to establish an efficient business and food safety strategy to achieve success. 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 on Nov. 10th from 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM Eastern Standard Time at the Shelby County Cooperative Extension Office and will cover the Restaurant sales, Grocery/ Wholesale/Retail sales and Farm to School business functions. Admission is $25.00 which will cover training materials, additional resources, lunch, and refreshments.
A panel assembled with local and regional buyers in addition to technical support professionals will build upon what is 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.
