Food processors collective streamlines local year round
A collaboration of 20 anchor institutions and nonprofits is supporting the development of a New England Food Processors Collective. The collective will improve institutional access to processed local foods, create reliable markets for farmers, and provide new job opportunities.
Spring has sprung and we are heading into the summer season of Nourished by New England, our seasonal harvest program for health care. Crisp cucumbers, sweet berries, and fresh redfish are on the menu for summer.
Local year-round: New England food processors’ collective
A cross-sector project will enable local food processors to share services such as sourcing of local produce, marketing, and distribution improving access for institutions to a nearly year-round basis.
