Keep the Heat in the Kitchen – Not on You

We can help you avoid legal headaches by navigating you through the laws and regulations affecting your food business.


Learn from our online courses.

What type of food business do you have?


Are you selling through retailers, at farmers markets or online? Learn what regulations apply.


Learn the best practices to start, operate and protect your brand legally.


Understand what you need to know to keep your temporary or mobile food business in compliance.

At Startup Food Biz we provide educational materials, such as online videos and supplemental guides, to help you successfully launch, operate and protect your food or beverage business.

Learn how to:

  • navigate food laws and regulations
  • create labels compliant with state and federal laws
  • protect your brand from the competition
  • protect your recipe
  • ensure your hiring practices are legal
  • comply with rules when making marketing claims like "organic" and "all-natural"
  • choose the best legal entity for your business

...and more.

Startup Food Biz is the first legal and regulatory educational resource dedicated solely to the needs of food and beverage entrepreneurs. Federal and state agency websites are confusing, hard to navigate and crammed with legalese. But finding a lawyer that specializes in food law is quite difficult and usually pricey. We knew there had to be a better way...which is why we launched Startup Food Biz.

Startup Food Biz is supported by a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).*
