Building a food or natural product business isn’t just about sourcing and production and marketing. Entrepreneurs also need services, including legal representation with expertise in the industry. Rakesh Amin — a member of the Naturally Chicago Board — and the law firm of Amin Talati Wasserman have that expertise, and Rakesh will share it at the Friday Morning Mingle on February 21.
Morning Mingles are free to attend, and are held at LYFE Kitchen, 413 N. Clark at Hubbard in the River North neighborhood. Coffee is free too, and along with the presentation, there is the best Good Food and Natural Products networking in Chicago.
