We're nationally known for helping new food entrepreneurs develop and bring new food products to market. The FIC is located in Portland, a food lover’s paradise, where new and exciting tastes are always on the horizon.
Understanding the market for a food item is a crucial step to a product's success, but there is more to consider. Food entrepreneurs can contact our Product Development Team to learn about the basics of developing a food product, including everything from packaging and food safety to shelf life considerations.
All these topics come together in the popular Fridays @ FIC food workshop program, designed to give new food entrepreneurs a taste of the process of food product development. While life resumes as the Pandemic eases, we have not yet planned offerings of the Fridays @the FIC yet.
