Trade Associations

This list is neither all-inclusive nor is it meant to serve as an endorsement. Some of references will be of minimal value to the food entrepreneur, but I have included them on the outside chance that one of you might be interested. Also, many of the associations are completely irrelevant to microenterprise food entrepreneurs. We will let you decide.
