On October 26th, 2018, the Wisconsin Local Food Network organized the Local Food Expo as part of the amazing event: the Edible Startup Summit.

The Edible Startup Summit is an annual day-long event for new and growing food and farming businesses in Wisconsin. Sharon Lezberg from UW-Extension Dane County was the key organizer, and she and her partners (Food Finance Institute, DATCP, UW-Extension, UW Law and Entrepreneurship Clinic, RPs Pasta Company, WWBIC, Madison MarketReady Program, FEED Kitchens, WLFN) organized an educational, inspiring, and informative event!

Local Food Expo

We had 18 businesses at the Local Food Expo, which was held immediately after lunch. It was a great time for businesses to practice talking to people about their business and products, and it was a wonderful networking opportunity for all the Edible Startup Summit participants.
