A place to cook, process, store, develop, and package for your small business seems too good to be true? Believe it or not, such a place does exist. Shared commercial kitchens are an ideal way to take your start-up food production business to a larger customer base.
You can really only cook so much in your own kitchen or in the church’s basement. When you require a larger space but you’re just not ready for a full-time lease finding a solution where you can produce more without overhead cost of your own location is easier than you think.
The Ontario Agri-Food Venture Centre (OAFVC) shared commercial kitchen is the answer. It is a place where you can create and test your products and get your process down to a science. Mass production is made easier in a commercial kitchen, and with a variety of storage options the waste of any product or extra ingredient will be minimal to non-existent. In the end, OAFVC saves you money while you are able to take your start-up food business to the next level.
