Project Update

The Greenbelt Fund is Growing with a Social Enterprise to Optimize Food Flow 

The Greenbelt Fund is helping to build a local food economy in Ontario by increasing consumer access to products grown, raised and harvested here while brokering new trading relationships across the food system. In support of their mission, they are developing a social enterprise to address the gap in infrastructure in the middle of the food value chain.

This project involves developing a software application that will seamlessly integrate with their online network and marketing service,, enhance the viability of local growers and producers, and optimize the transportation of food from place to place.
