As a food producer we all face similar hurdles and challenges in trying to create a mission driven business that is sustainable and profitable. We want to build a community of artisanal food businesses to learn from each other, exchange tips and share resources. We don't each have to re-invent the wheel but instead use our collective knowledge, expertise and networks to grow our businesses.
Our mission is to bring together NYC artisanal food producers to pave the way in re-designing the current food manufacturing model. We organize workshops, network events and business development presentations for current artisanal food businesses. As part of our goals we want to revolutionize the way we do business through resource sharing, cooperative ingredient sourcing and working collaboratively to reduce join costs associated with running a food manufacturing business. The opportunities to expand our individual businesses by working together are boundless and provide a fresh set of possibilities.
This is a chance to meet other food manufacturing professionals share, learn and surge forward.
- Food manufacturing or production business
- Registered business in NY or NJ
- In operation for a minimum of 3 months
We will be hosting a variety of meetups for aspiring food artisans in the near future so stay tuned if you don't yet meet the requirements.
NOTICE: We will be planning our first meet up for the week of April 16th to come up with a strategy for workshops, presentations and cooperative opportunities based on member feedback. This will be your chance to help shape the direction of the group. Please note this first meeting will be open to food producers only.
This Meetup Group is closed to new members.
