An investment of up to $1.9 million to help the Canadian Food Innovation Network (CFIN) develop a digital food innovation hub, was announced by The Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food. This project aims to bring together the components of Canada’s food ecosystem into an online community, through the development and use of digital technology.

The digital food innovation hub will be available for businesses to access one-on-one mentorship and knowledge, research and innovation resources. A component of this tool is the role it plays in helping identify and match entrepreneurs with technical expertise and partnerships to help spur growth. Serving as a collaboration space to share best practices and opportunities among the ecosystem.
