Through the process of the project, we have discovered that there are many business supports that small scale food processors could benefit from. In this section, there is introductory material for those considering starting and growing a food processing business. This does not take the place of a full course or the benefits available from consultants. Over time, several tools that are in the process of development will be uploaded to this section so please check it out from time to time. A small scale food processing business is certainly similar to other small businesses but because of the regulations and the structure of the food system, there are extra layers of understanding and preparation that are needed to ensure that a start-up or a grow-up business can thrive. Canadians need more regionally produced good food. So, as well as all the business supports we offer, we wish you good luck and be proud of your good food product!
