Toronto/CMEDIA: Canada’s Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, Marie-Claude Bibeau, announced an investment of up to $1.9 million to help the Canadian Food Innovation Network (CFIN) develop a digital food innovation hub through digital technology to facilitate connectivity among players in Canada’s food innovation ecosystem into an interactive online community.
“This investment in the Canadian Food Innovation Network makes it possible to establish links to easily share these resources so that each stakeholder benefits and becomes more efficient,” said Bibeau in a news release.
Committed to advancing innovation and digital technologies to help the Canadian agriculture and agri-food sector grow, these strategic investments would strengthen its competitiveness internationally to create a stronger, stable, and more sustainable food system in Canada.
One-on-one mentorship as well as knowledge, research, and innovation resources for digital food innovation would be accessible by the hub around the clock for businesses.
This tool would help to identify and match entrepreneurs with technical expertise and partnerships to help spur growth and serve as a collaboration space to share best practices and opportunities among the ecosystem.
The digital connectivity of this new platform will help businesses break down barriers to economic growth and support Canada’s economic future.
“This investment will catalyze innovation, facilitate collaboration, enable critical partnerships, and establish Canada as a dynamic food innovation community, “said Joseph Lake, Chief Executive Officer, of the Canadian Food Innovation Network in a news release.
