Enterprise Development – The focus is to increase the number, size and diversity of food businesses and initiatives in our region. We will continue to offer mentorship and support to food businesses in partnership with Kamloops Innovation.
Processing Facilities – We are collaborating with community partners to establish shared food processing facilities that will be available for rental by food entrepreneurs. The focus of these facilities is to incubate new food businesses, promote innovation, lower costs of food processing, and offer a vibrant experience for customers.
Distribution and Aggregation – We plan to connect food businesses with larger and local distributors such as the Kamloops Organics Buying Club and other local food outlets.
Food Recovery – We will work with community partners and the Gleaning Abundance Program to process surplus fresh produce. These processed products will be donated to partner agencies or sold in a social enterprise model to raise funds for KFPC’s programs.
