About Us

Foodpreneur Advantage

The Food and Beverage manufacturing sector of Ontario is the 3rd largest in North America and is vitally important to our local and regional economy.

For over 30 years, Ontario Small Business Enterprise Centres have been committed to guiding people through the start-up and early growth stages of small business. They are key economic development partners within their local communities.

Libro Credit Union supports local food accessibility and employment as two of their key focus areas to grow prosperity in the region. As a credit union with strong roots in agriculture, they are committed to the agri-food sector in Southwestern Ontario.

Under the umbrella of Foodpreneur Advantage, these organizations have come together to offer a collection of entrepreneurial food related programming. Here you will find introductory workshops for any food related business and comprehensive programs for scalable food and beverage manufacturing ventures that produce consumer packaged goods (CPG).

We encourage you to explore the seminars and programs profiled here, and to connect with your local Small Business Enterprise Centre for additional support, coaching and possible access to government funding programs.
