BC Food Hub Network Industry Survey - Final Report March 28, 2019
The BC Ministry of Agriculture (“The Ministry”), in collaboration with industry and post-secondary institutions, is in the process of developing a BC Food Hub Network (“The Food Hub Network”). The creation of the Food Hub Network is part of the Ministry’s Feed BC mandate pillar. To guide the development of the Food Hub Network, the Ministry commissioned MNP LLP (“MNP”) to conduct a province-wide survey to identify the current needs, challenges and opportunities of BC food and beverage processors and those interested in entering the industry.
A total of 205 survey respondents involved in the BC food and beverage processing and/or agriculture and seafood production industries participated in the survey. Responses were received from all regions in the province, with the geographic distribution of responses being roughly similar to the overall distribution of the industry in BC. The distribution of respondents by size of organization was also roughly similar to the distribution of the industry in BC, and responses were received from organizations engaged in a wide range of sub-sectors within the food and beverage processing industry, which reflected the diverse nature of the food and beverage processing industry in BC.
