Port Alberni will be the home of a new regional food hub.

A food hub is a centralized shared-use food and beverage processing facility that provides business owners with affordable access to production facilities, specialized equipment, new technology, research and development, expertise and services. The hubs will bring more opportunities for farmers, ranchers and wild harvesters to increase revenue by adding value to their products.

The new facility in Port Alberni will help build and connect future regional food hubs in other communities to create the B.C. Food Hub Network.
