 Agriculture in Alberta is a strong, well-diversified economic sector. Its success is particularly evident in the exceptional growth shown by the food and beverage industry. In 2010, Alberta’s food and beverage manufacturing industries generated a total of $11.5 billion (preliminary estimate) in manufacturing sales. As well as generating impressive revenue, the food and beverage processing industries employed a total of 22,900 Albertans in 2010 and provides consumers the world over with a wide selection of appealing and nutritious food products.

As part of the ongoing effort to promote development in this dynamic sector, Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development is pleased to introduce Business Basics for Alberta Food Processors. The guide has been developed to provide emerging food processors with helpful business and marketing information essential to planning and operating a successful business.

Some of the information in this guide has been adapted with permission from: The Massachusetts Food Processors Resource Manual, developed by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Department of Food and Agriculture; and The Atlantic Canada Food Processor's Guide, developed by the P.E.I. Food Technology Centre.
