The North Carolina Specialty Foods Association was established in 1992. Our mission is to actively encourage and support the promotion and appreciation of North Carolina specialty food, beverages and wine products.
The North Carolina Brewers Guild is a trade organization comprised of brewers, vendors and craft beer enthusiasts focused on promoting North Carolina beer.
The department was a sponsor of the original Fire on the Rock held in 2005. This year, the department is helping the local event expand to include Fire on the Dock in Wilmington, Fire in the Triangle in Raleigh and Fire in the Triad in Greensboro and Winston-Salem.
