Getting Your Product to Market is a one day event celebrating culinary entrepreneurship sponsored by the Paul C. P. McIlhenny Mentorship Program in cooperation with Rouses Market. Hosted by Tim Acosta of Rouses Market, a panel of members of the Rouses Market buying team and food distributors will present throughout the day, offering advice and information about what they look for in new products, how to approach buyers, and much more. Come and learn directly from the different departments in a grocery store how you can get your food products onto the shelves of major retailers.

Anyone with an idea for a culinary product, whether an idea or a product in mid-development, should come to meet other people developing products as well as to get questions answered. The event is free with pre-registration, and lunch will be provided by Rouses Market.
