The WE Power Food Empowerment Expo
Spend the day celebrating Women in the food industry. Championed by the Women of WE Power Food (Hillsborough, NC), and the Women of Ashe County's High Country Community Kitchen, both are 501(c)(3)'s. Women who empower, support and nurture Women already in, or just entering the food industry.

WE Power Food, Inc. is based in Hillsborough, NC.  Our mission is to empower women in the food industry.  We are partnering with the Ashe County High Country Community Kitchen to bring our Empowerment Expo to the women of Western North Carolina - starting in Boone this September.

This exciting Expo will include leading experts in the food industry who will be presenting topics such as:

   What Do I Need to Know About Starting and Growing a Food Business?
   What Do I Need to Know About Regulations and Getting Inspected?
   What Common Hurdles Should I Prepare to Tackle?
   How Can I Take Quality Photographs of My Product with my Mobile Phone?
   How Do I Stay Focused and Positive?
   How Do I Move From Direct-to-Consumer sales to Wholesale?

As well as numerous other points of interest to enlighten any woman in the food industry - or any woman considering starting a food business.  Let our experts help you sort out the processes, the expectations, and even what limitations you may need to consider.

Additionally, we will have a professional photographer on-site to take head-shots of you with or without your product.  This service is provided as part of your registration.
