Young woman cooking healthy food with lots of vegetables
INSTITUTE, W.Va. (AP) -- Food entrepreneurs will compete for more than $10,000 in goods and services at the annual State Fair of West Virginia.
The Aug. 12 competition at the state exposition was launched in 2006 by West Virginia State University Extension Service. It is intended to serve as a springboard for emerging food entrepreneurs who have envisioned their home-cooked product on a grocery shelf.
An additional category is also being added for existing businesses.
Prizes include recipe refinement, packaging design and production time in a commercial kitchen, among other offerings to help creative food entrepreneurs get off the ground.
