Helping food entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurs often share how daunting it is to start a food business. They feel comfortable in the kitchen but may lack knowledge about how to launch their dream business or bring a product to market. Kitchen Council breaks down barriers and makes the process less intimidating and more attainable.
