VIRTUAL COOKING SHOW
Your Business + Our Workforce + This Experience = Recipe for Business Success in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley
Many of the Shenandoah Valley’s best kept secrets are name brands being produced in state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities throughout our region. Our cooking classes will give us an opportunity to tell our story of deep food and beverage manufacturing expertise through good food and fellowship – virtually.
Throughout 2021 you’ll hear from local food and beverage industry partners on their business success stories and how their projects – both big and small, new and expanding – were made possible by regional ingredients for their success.
Follow along throughout the year as we share how the Shenandoah Valley’s food and beverage businesses maximize farm-to-table culture for field-to-market success.
