January Meeting: The Business of Food – Challenges to Scaling up our Local Food System

On January 23rd, our meeting topic is “The Business of Food-Challenges to Scaling up Our Local Food System”, a topic that we hope will help our members and guests better understand how our food current system practically works, as well as give us an opportunity to examine how we as an advisory body, can support more local food production and consumption.

There will be a panel of three speakers, each given 5 minutes to explain to the room challenges they perceive to increasing the volume or improving the business case for more local food in the BC market. After the panel, we will also do some break out work to explore the challenges we’ve heard about.

The meeting starts at 6 pm at Vancouver City Hall in the Town Hall Meeting Room. The panel will start after our break at 7pm. After 5 pm, enter City Hall from the main entrance on 12th Avenue.
