Wednesday, March 7, 2018 2:30pm - 4:30pm
Location: Ripley Huron Community Centre

What supports are available, what are common challenges and how have they been overcome, are there new and emerging online platforms that can make a difference? Panelists will provide information and engage in Q&A as we explore growth opportunities. 

Panelists include:

Jessica Kelly, Direct Farm Marketing Specialist, OMAFRA

What is FreshSpoke and how does it work? This new online platform is a local food marketplace that simplifies order, payment and delivery for buyers, farmers and other small producers along with commercial drivers. Could it work here?

How do I expand my market? Price and package for different markets? Get fresh produce in my restaurant when I need it? Is the co-operative model one we should pursue? Ask questions or our panelists and explore your growth potential.
