WHAT IS THE FOOD INCUBATION SUMMIT?

The only event of its kind, the annual Food Incubation Summit is 2-day event complete with education sessions, tours, and networking, and culminating in a celebration of food, music, and all things food incubation.

Kitchens as a service (KAAS) are spreading around the country, propelled by America’s changing tastes and an expanding market for healthy, fresh, local, and sustainable specialty foods. By providing entrepreneurs, producers, and food access programs with affordable commercial kitchen space, KAAS can help strengthen local food systems and build community prosperity.

Because of this, KAAS are being embraced as tools to achieve a wide variety of community impact goals, from job creation to workforce training, healthy food access to nutrition education, farm viability to localizing the food economy, and neighborhood revitalization to tourism. Additionally, investments in KAAS offer more inclusive economic opportunities. The shared use commercial kitchen has become an important tool for overcoming obstacles entrepreneurs with limited resources face when entering the food industry.

The Network for Incubator and Commissary Kitchens (NICK) is the largest network of KAAS in the world. The NICK supports the food industry through sharing data, best practices, and technical assistance to build and grow successful shared-use kitchen businesses.

 

The Food Incubation Summit is designed to support this community in order to enable efficiency, growth, and innovation in local food and is produced by The Food Corridor.
