Expand Your Community Based Food Production Business on Your Terms

Posted by OAFVC on Dec 28, 2018 9:00:00 AM

Let’s be honest, when you’re running a community food production business the focus needs to be on day-to-day tasks - like expanding your consumer base and meeting large volumes of orders. But it does get hard to put a schedule in place, especially when it comes to finding a food processing facility to grow your business.

Most processing places require you to book in advance and commit to a set schedule. But OAFVC’s food processing facility, in Northumberland County lets you expand your business on your own terms.
