What is the South Carolina Specialty Food Association?

The South Carolina Specialty Food Association (SCSFA) is the only statewide organization dedicated to promoting the best specialty food products available in the Palmetto state.

As specialty food sales continue to climb at the national level, SCSFA is evolving to meet the growing needs of our members. The non-profit association seeks to further the development and awareness of the South Carolina specialty foods industry  through:

  • Education
  • Networking
  • Peer support/mentoring
  • Promotions

For over 20 years, the South Carolina Specialty Food Association has helped farmers, producers, and retailers across the state grow their businesses through joint marketing programs, promotional campaigns, and technical assistance.
