FORT PIERCE, Fla. — UF/IFAS and St. Lucie County Extension wants to help locals make money off their homemade food products with a special workshop on Saturday, Nov. 16 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Sunshine Kitchen, located inside the Treasure Coast Research Park, 7550 Pruitt Research Center Road.
Do you make the best cookies, jams or breads ever and have a desire to market your product? This workshop will teach you about:
- Laws that allow you to do so from your own home kitchen.
- Food Safety guidelines
- Basic business skills
- Food business growth options
Florida’s Cottage Food laws were recently relaxed, making it easier for operators to increase sales.
