By adaptively reusing an existing building on CCE Niagara’s campus, this center is intended to foster entrepreneurism and grow food-related businesses and small to mid-sized farms that want to begin producing value added products. It will support start-up enterprises by providing technical assistance, business programming, and other services including a commercialization kitchen and storage facility.
CCE received funding from the United States Department of Agriculture for the planning phase of the project, which was completed in March 2016. CCE has just recently received funding from the USDA’s Local Food Promotion Program to continue development of this project
