Our Guest speaker Is Emily, VDACS Food Technical Specialist for the Central Region. With VDACS, Emily conducts food safety inspections of retail stores, manufacturers, and warehouses. As a technical specialist, I also review applications for new food businesses and provide consultations to other Food Safety Specialists and members of the food industry. She is a graduate from the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, majoring in biology and minoring in chemistry and environmental sustainability.

Emily will be sharing a presentation about operating a home-based food manufacturing business in Virginia. The presentation will also cover applicable regulations, the application process, home kitchen exemptions, labeling requirements, and other related topics. Although the presentation is geared toward home-based food processing businesses, much of this information is also applicable to commercial kitchen-based and stand-alone food manufacturers.
