CAMEO hosts "Food, Glorious Food Biz" on December 3, 2013 at the Los Angeles Federal Reserve.
"California feeds the country and much is being done here to build and support the infrastructure of the food industry and enable small businesses," said Heidi Pickman, CAMEO's Communications Director. "New legislation being introduced by Assembly member Gatto, work on regional food hubs, capacity building for low income food entrepreneurs, new efficiency apps - they are some of the examples of the innovation and creativity being applied to create business opportunities in the food industry."
The one-day symposium will bring together resources that will help small business owners in the food business, or those who are thinking about starting a business.
CAMEO announces our two keynotes: Liza Braude-Glidden, Co-Founder and Creative Director of Beanfields Bean and Rice Chips and Evan Kleiman, host of KCRW’s 'Good Food' and cookbook author, the most recent Cucina Fresca.
Participants will learn about food policy in Los Angeles and California that highlight business opportunities including street vending, corner store conversions, healthy food procurement, food hubs and cottage kitchens.
Several new, innovative tools to help business owners with financials, credit, loans and business planning will be demonstrated.
The event takes place on December 3, 2013 at the Los Angeles Federal Reserve, 950 S. Grand Avenue from 9:00am to 4:00pm. Learn more about the agenda of 'Food, Glorious Food Biz.'
