A One-Stop-Shop for Food & Beverage Industry Professionals

Our annual Food Resource Business Exchange (FReBE) is designed to bring local industry professionals working in food-related businesses together under one roof to exchange ideas, resources and services on a business-to-business level. Attendees will also have hands-on educational opportunities throughout the day.

Current Hope & Main members, graduates and non-affiliated food entrepreneurs are invite to attend! This includes restaurateurs, caterers, food service managers, farmers, food producers, grocers, and any other professionals that work within the food and beverage sector.

  • Legal services
  • Packaging
  • Labeling
