  • Once you and Blue Ridge Food Ventures staff have agreed that you will become a client and go into production at our facility, download and complete the following document:
  • If you will be making a Natural Product, you will also need to complete and bring in a copy of your Product Ingredient Checklist. All natural products produced at BRFV must be made using food-grade ingredients.
  • INSURANCE: If you are a caterer, making a consumer packaged good or are a mobile food unit storing foods and/or beverages at BRFV, you will also need to obtain a $2,000,000 product liability insurance policy. This policy must name BRFV as the additional insured. A good place to start is the Food Liability Insurance Program (FLIP). This link will take you to BRFV's linked insurance sign-up page - you can use coupon code "blueridgefoodventures" to receive a discount on your policy!
  • FOOD SAFETY TRAINING: All client businesses making food for human consumption at BRFV that are inspected by the Department of Environmental Health MUST also possess a valid ServSafe Food Protection Manager Certification. Sign up for classes here or here.
