Agriculture - Adding Value

Grande Prairie's picture

Do we need more ways of adding value to Agricultural products in the County? Tell us what you think.

Ideas

Yes, we do. I think the first step is to have a freeze and cold storage area for food in Grande prairie. That way local restaurants could access food a lot easier. We could use this as a point of shipping as well for large shipments of food that need to be transported. Partnering with Sysco or GFS might be a good avenue. To make value added products is tough and expensive so I think the best approach would to have an incubator space for companies to ramp up in. Maybe the Leduc food centre and community futures can put their heads together.
