Maple Ridge Food Hub Implementation Plan
The Maple Ridge Food Hub Implementation Plan (the ‘Plan’) provides recommendations regarding a five year pilot program for hub operations and presents an associated set of financial projections. The Plan supports the Maple Ridge Agricultural Plan by exploring the feasibility of a shared agricultural infrastructure strategy. The Plan builds upon the Maple Ridge Food Hub Situational Analysis and Market Identification Report to include a robust and scalable strategy for the food hub framework. The primary goal of the Plan is to assist local farmers in saving time and money by selling their products collectively. Resources, including staff and equipment, would be shared to minimize overhead and operational costs.
