Join us as we explore the food hub concept and its potential as a viable market opportunity for local market operators.
Food hubs offer storage, marketing and distribution solutions for locally produced food.
A variety of viable food hub models exist. All offer the opportunity to attract new producers and expand the sale of locally grown food to a wider audience by developing new partnerships with retailers, foodservice operators, distributors, funders, and others.
An emerging trend, food hubs draw people within the supply chain together and provide what is needed to make local food activity stronger.
