A ServSafe course could be a good place to start. ServSafe teaches food safety basics and can help you to reduce your liability in starting a processed food enterprise. I took this course a few years ago and found it to be really interesting and worthwhile! It's also a great opportunity to check out the new Vermont Food Venture Center if you haven't seen it yet.
The full-day course will be offered next month on January 22nd at the Vermont Food Venture Center in Hardwick. The course fee is $130. The class size is limited so register soon!
