We envision the Produce Centre as a community facility where local farmers aggregate, package and distribute their produce and where local small-scale processors transform locally grown produce into value-added products such as sauces, juices and preserves. Many small and medium-sized farmers and processors t would find it cost-prohibitive to construct a facility like this on their own, but a shared facility can meet the need affordably, providing specialized equipment and space through a cost-recovery, non-profit model.
