Since 2015, the AAC has sponsored Food Starter via Canada’s Agriculture and Agri-Food Growing Forward 2 program.
The Growing Forward 2 program focuses on competitiveness, innovation and market development to ensure Canadian processors and producers have the tools and resources they need to continue to innovate and capitalize on emerging market opportunities.
Food Starter fits in perfectly within this mandate. We use funding provided by Growing Forward 2 to help create an optimized space for food entrepreneurs to get all the right tools they need to start and grow their businesses. This includes, access to shared food production and packaging facilities, training, in-house consultation, and more.
This video, created by AAC, showcases how these funds are benefitting food entrepreneurs.
