Saskatchewan Grocery Retail and Foodservice Value Chain Initiative  

 

The Saskatchewan Grocery Retail and Foodservice Value Chain Initiative is being undertaken by the Agriculture Council of Saskatchewan Inc. (ACS), and is being funded by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada through the Canadian Agricultural Adaptation Program (CAAP) program. This program will provide knowledge and expertise to Saskatchewan’s producers and processors to allow them to meet the needs of the foodservice and grocery industries while allowing all within the industry to build on the success of the past decade.

 

The Grocery Retail and Foodservice Value Chain Initiative will:

  • Enhance the awareness of foodservice operators and grocery retailers of the capabilities of the Saskatchewan agri-food industry;
  • Educate Saskatchewan growers and processors of the nature and needs of the foodservice and grocery industries; and,
  • Facilitate collaboration between foodservice operators/grocery retailers and the agri-food industry and coordinate available resources to bring innovative and relevant food products to the foodservice industry to meet consumer needs.

 

The Grocery Retail and Foodservice Value Chain Initiative focuses on a consumer and operator driven approach, working with foodservice operators and grocery retailers to identify market opportunities and/or operational challenges that can be addressed through innovative products. The initiative then seeks to source those products through Saskatchewan food growers and processors and bring them to market in a timely and reliable fashion.

 

A new website has been developed with electronic guides and information for those looking to establish themselves and their product in the foodservice or grocery retail industries. Go to www.saskvaluechain.ca for news and information for Saskatchewan's producers and processors.
