Food hubs a hot new trend

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Food hubs are growing in popularity as an alternative marketing option for Alberta’s smaller producers and processors, says new-venture specialist Christine Anderson.

Most food hubs serve as a drop-off point for several farms in a region and a pickup point for customers. Along with marketing, they may “also offer a number of additional services including logistical co-ordination such as packaging and repackaging, brokering, storage and distribution,” said Anderson.
