Atlantic Canada’s first food accelerator launches to support Prince Edward Island food businesses.  Food Island Partnership will unveil the new program, Food Propel, at an orientation session on September 11th, in Charlottetown PEI.
 
“The program will help companies that have strong motivation to grow to successfully capture new opportunities – such as expanding into new markets and launching new products.” said Bryan Inglis, CEO of Food Island Partnership.
 
Companies participating in Food Propel will benefit from a dedicated mentor team, workshops led by industry experts, market travel, and a cost shared growth fund to assist with strategic investments to grow their business.  Six Prince Edward Island food businesses will be selected to participate in the one-year program based on their fit with the program’s objectives.

The deadline to purchase tickets to Forage PEI has been extended until September 30 to ensure those working in the height of the harvest and tourism season have an opportunity to register. A limited number of tickets are available to primary producers at fifty percent off the regular rate. Participants will have the opportunity to take in four panels throughout the first day of the symposium. “The panels will focus on current trends and topics relevant to the Island’s food scene. We’re extremely pleased with the high calibre of knowledge and experience represented by the panelists,” said McCourt.
