The Mission of the Virginia Specialty Food Association is to provide its membership with growth, educational, marketing and collaborative opportunities that promote their passion for creating the finest and diverse specialty food products throughout the Commonwealth.


As interest in craft made and local food continues to rise nationally, the VASFA is evolving to meet the growing needs of our members. Our non-profit association is the leading information resource for all specialty food and beverage producers, service providers, retailers and industry professionals within Virginia.  Our Goal is to help our member businesses grow and be successful while further developing the awareness of the Virginia Specialty Food & Beverage industry  through education, promotion, and collaboration.
