Source:Finance For Food

Publisher: Chelsea Green Publishing


In this book, Elizabeth U discusses how food businesses can save our social and environmental problems. This exploration is heavily based on financial options and opportunities for people that own or are looking to own sustainable food-based businesses. She gives advice on which capital opportunities are the best for each person's individual situation and gives referrals to the sources of that capital as well.

This is one of the very few books that I've purchased within seconds of hearing that it existed. Elizabeth 'U' does a great job of not only explaining all the possible funding sources, but she gives her honest opinion on each option. It's hard to find anyone willing to say, for example, that the effort needed to stay within the requirements of government grants is rarely worth the cash reward. Elizabeth also walks through the various regulations that various food businesses might brush up against. There are also plenty of examples of businesses that have pursued each funding type.

('U' is in quotes because apparently there is some rule intending to prevent folks from using 'u' for the word you.)
