Regular communications will help keep you informed and stay in the know.


Business education and information to help sustain, mange, and/or grow your business. We partner with the food innovations team at Virginia Tech and the Virginia Cooperative Extension to provide training and technical support for our members.



Finding information for your Virginia business is made easier for our members with resources made available to members.


We provide opportunities for networking with fellow producers and business service providers. We provide a continuous pipeline of communication.


Peer Support/Mentoring

Our members, professional advisors and resource people are always available to assist and answer your questions. We've "been there and done that" and are happy to help where we can.



Opportunities to connect with retailers, grocers, distributors, brokers, and buyers. The VSFBA is helping to set up promotional programs with retailers. These programs would be difficult on your own, but as a collective unit these promotions are more attractive to buyers.

Sales & Marketing Assistance

Join an organization committed to helping you grow your business. Our board is made up of seasoned specialty food manufacturers with hundreds of combined years in the industry and is also here to help with connections.


Expanding Industry

Our strength in numbers helps grow our association as well as the Virginia's Finest program. Your participation makes sales grow. When our members are strong the association is stronger, and we can do more to support our specialty craft producers and entrepreneurs.


​Continuing Growth

More benefits continue to become available as the VSFBA grows.
