Selling a food-based business while maintaining its essential character and role in the local food economy is no small task. It’s never too early to start planning! Come learn from Maine experts and food-based business owners, farmers, and fishermen who have successfully transitioned their businesses, be it to their employees, their children, or to unrelated buyers. Choose from break-out sessions on worker ownership models, legal and financial considerations, family dynamics, and more. This event is associated with the Food Studies Program at University of Southern Maine.
