Feeding Growth in 2016

This fall, a five-part workshop series called Feeding Growth: Scale Your Progressive Food Business is connecting values-based BC entrepreneurs with business sector leaders who can help them build their brands, access financing, and scale their manufacturing and distribution.

Salt Spring Coffee will be hosting the October 13 workshop at our Richmond roastery. Join other entrepreneurs and experts, including our Senior Director, Sales and Marketing Aron Bjornson, for insights and lively discussion on sustainable sourcing and production.
