Together, Let’s Grow your
The governments of Canada and Ontario are investing up to $2.5 million to help the agri-food sector expand online, providing more opportunities for producers to grow their business.
COVID-19 has transformed Ontario’s small businesses. Operations like yours have had to close doors to customers at the cusp of the most profitable season of the year.
The Federal Government has responded with the Agri-Food Open for E-Business initiative to help food producers, farmers markets, retailers, garden centres, greenhouses, nurseries, and agricultural associations develop their online business for more sustainable sales.
The goal of this initiative is to provide consumers with greater access to a wide variety of food and agriculture products. You don’t want to miss out on this critical opportunity to pivot your business towards e-commerce – but how, right?!
In the scramble to pivot and adjust this spring, it’s understandable if your head is spinning and you aren’t sure which path to take.
Every situation is different and what works for one producer won’t necessarily fit with others. You may already be online and realize that you need to expand, or perhaps you’ve never been online and don’t know where to start. Either way, there are lots of questions to answer about your customers base, your inventory process, and how you want to position yourself for online sales.
