The federal government announced an investment of up to $1.9 million to help the Canadian Food Innovation Network (CFIN) develop a digital food innovation hub, with the goal of enhancing connectivity among Canada’s food innovation ecosystem.

The digital food innovation hub will be available around the clock for businesses to access one-on-one mentorship as well as knowledge, research and innovation resources. A key component of this tool will be helping to identify and match entrepreneurs with technical expertise and partnerships. It will also serve as a collaboration space to share best practices and opportunities among the ecosystem.

Launched in 2021, the Canadian Food Innovation Network (CFIN) is a not-for-profit organization with a mandate to help grow Canada’s economy by catalyzing innovation in the food sector. CFIN’s funding programs are supported by the Government of Canada’s Strategic Innovation Fund (SIF), a program designed to attract and support high-quality business investments in Canada’s most dynamic and innovative sectors.
