Food Craft Institute
Food Craft Institute

The Food Craft Institute (FCI) works to create and improve the viability of small and medium-scale value-added food businesses in the United States.

FCI is a professional development, non-profit educational institution that combines classroom and hands-on education to teach traditional food-making techniques and the entrepreneurial skills needed to build viable businesses.

We offer structured, hands-on courses taught by a combination of expert food makers, owners of successful food businesses as well as marketing and business consultants. Teaching manual skills and a deep understanding of primary ingredients, our practitioners guide students in techniques that date back centuries, while our classroom instructors strive to fill information gaps for early stage entrepreneurs and help launch new artisan food businesses poised for success.
