Information Meeting on the Vermont Food Venture Center

January 17, 2010, Hardwick, VT - Have you heard about the Vermont Food Venture Center (VFVC) being rebuilt in Hardwick and wondered what it is? Do you have questions about how an incubator kitchen might help with your food business? If so, please join Heidi Krantz, Small Agricultural Business Advisor for the Vermont Small Business Development Center (VtSBDC)  and Louise Calderwood, Interim Project Manager for the Vermont Food Venture Center, at an information meeting on January 22nd at 10am in the North Country High School Career Center in Newport.

The mission of the Vermont Food Venture Center is to provide professional food processing opportunities to regional agricultural producers in a way that increases the value of that agricultural production. As the facility will open this coming spring, Heidi and Louise will discuss the current and future plans for this kitchen, giving people an inside look at its construction and layout, available equipment, best use ideas and more. Technical questions about how to process food will not be addressed although contacts with consultants and technical assistance can be provided.

The North Country High School Career Center is located at 209 Veteran’s Ave in Newport. For more information or to ask questions, please contact Heidi Krantz at 802-472-5840, ext 3 or email her at hkrantz@vtsbdc.org
