Last Monday almost 30 investors came out to hear pitches from regional businesses that are building a healthier, more sustainable food system at our Food Investor Network. We heard about opportunities to get healthier options into school fundraisers, help a local pickle maker meet rising demand, assist a pioneer in cooked beans expand nationally, launch a hydroponic lettuce operation, and get in on the ground floor of an game changing organic grade natural seed coating that makes plants more drought resistant.
A special shout out also goes out to our sponsors for providing delicious food and drink. Thank you Starvation Alley Farms, Black Rock Spirits, The Better Bean Company, Heidi Ho Veganics, Britt’s Pickles, Ubrlocal, Urban Bee Company, Keep It Real Food Company, and Holy Mountain Brewery!
