Creating New Food Businesses and Collaborations
We’ve Got What It Takes
Working together and using use smart technology and big data, we will move from the current “take-make-dispose” model to a food system that better serves our people, our prosperity and our planet.
Create 50 new circular businesses and collaborations by 2025
We plan to bring together people of diverse expertise, talent and resources through face-to-face and online collaborations. Together, we’ll use data, technology and innovative thinking to solve food challenges and create new circular businesses, jobs and social enterprises. We’ll also create new training opportunities to prepare local residents to work in the new food economy.
- Create a Circular Food Economy Lab to encourage new partnerships and collaborations, and share best practices to solve food problems
- Establish an Impact Fund by bringing together existing funding programs and providers for better coordination and new partnerships
- Promote fresh ideas – leverage local talent (like the UofG and Conestoga) to provide food innovation education and training
