Give your progressive food business a leg up with Feeding Growth. Feeding Growth’s Scale Your Progressive Food Business is a five-part workshop series that provides practical tips to environmentally progressive, organic, ethical, and socially responsible packaged goods companies at critical stages of expansion. Feeding Growth alumni include award-winning businesses such as Wize Monkey, Spread’em Kitchen and Boosh Food.
The five workshops follow the proven Feeding Growth recipe: personable and caring food industry mentors share advice, participants engage in hands-on exercises, and the series culminates with a keynote event celebrating our graduates and the local food movement.
This year Feeding Growth will be offering both an in-person and remote version of the workshop series. The full, in-person workshop series costs $299.00 ($199.00 for Vancity business members and Squamish region businesses) and the full, remote workshop series costs $149.50 and both are open to all.
