PANEL DISCUSSION

The Small Business Food & Beverage Landscape and The Safety Challenges They Face

SMBs are at the heart of our economy, and the food industry has no shortage of them. Delve into the top issues and challenges that innovative companies encounter. Uncover how they manage to thrive despite the lack of in-house safety and regulatory staff — and, in some cases, when the development and manufacturing is outsourced.  Leverage SMB’s secrets to profitability by:

  • Capitalizing on funds and services using government resources
  • Establishing supply chain partners – and trusting them
  • Scoping out cost-effective opportunities for export

Take note of the innovative and creative entrepreneurial endeavours of SMBs — they could be your future partners!
