About the West Island Food Hub
Ultimately, a network of interconnected logistical food hubs will guarantee better efficiency of logistical flows (goods, information and money). Thus, local food supply chains are well structured and financially viable. This contributes to making healthy food from local agriculture accessible to people experiencing food insecurity in Montreal.
The project aims to demonstrate that a logistical food hub can be managed collectively and meet some of the common technical needs of several businesses in agricultural production while fulfilling the vision.
What is a food hub ?
A logistical food hub ensures, among other things, the aggregation and distribution of local foodstuffs. It strengthens the competitiveness of the local agri-food sector to better serve all the actors in the food value chain, from production to consumption.
The different functions of a hub :
The objective of a hub is to better serve all stakeholders in the supply cycle, from the farm to the consumer's plate. These are collaborative projects with innovative business models that focus on the positive economic, social and environmental impacts of their activities.
