 Have you wondered what food hubs are all about and if they might be right for your business and your community?

The Explore Local 2017 webinar series continues on Wednesday, November 22, 2017, with Exploring Food Hubs. “Food hubs are one solution to the common aggregation and distribution challenge that many rural producers face getting their food products to market. As market opportunities grow across North America, food hubs offer another option for renewed business potential for Alberta’s local food operators and rural communities,” says Margurite Thiessen, value chain specialist, Alberta Agriculture and Forestry.

“This webinar will introduce the concept of food hubs, discuss different food hub models and the services each provides. We will go over the steps to help you determine if a food hub model is a solution or might suit your business, and we will provide links to valuable resources.”

This free webinar takes place at 9 a.m. MT on Wednesday, November 22, 2017. Please register online or visit our website explorelocal.ca/events for more information.
