Agri-food business and small-scale producer event in SDG

On October 19th, All Things Food and Bouffe 360° will host “Sprouting New Connections”, a half-day speaker series in Long Sault, featuring resources and information for small scale producers and agri-food businesses who are looking to scale up in our region.

The event, which will take place at the South Stormont Hall, will be held in partnership with the Social Development Council of Cornwall and Area, Cornwall and the Counties Community Futures Development Corporation, and the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas, Glengarry.

Topics will cover innovation and the value of a shared economy, delivery and distribution, health and safety requirements, packaging, labelling, food traceability, and key resources in the area. The day will conclude with an interactive Q&A panel of local business owners with lived experience scaling up their business to meet emerging markets.

Registration for the event is $20, and will take place from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.. Lunch will be served following the speaker series, and attendees are encouraged to stay and network.

Those wishing to set up samples to help promote their products are encouraged to RSVP and then connect with the organizers no later than October 11.  There is no added cost for exhibiting; however, table space is limited.
