Food Hub Feasibility Report
BRPC recently completed a food hub feasibility study for the Boonslick Region. The main objective of this study was to determine if a regional food hub would benefit small and emerging agri-businesses and help link them to multiple markets. The study sought to answer questions concerning the potential need, demand, and ultimately, the chances of success for a food hub located in the region. View the report.
