Michigan Food Hub Learning and Innovation Network
November 7, 2014
Food hubs are centrally located facilities with a business management structure facilitating the aggregation, storage, processing, distribution, and/or marketing of locally/regionally food products (USDA-AMS working definition).
The Michigan Food Hub Learning and Innovation Network is led by MSU Extension partner MSU Center for Regional Food Systems in collaboration with Morse Marketing Connections, LLC, and the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development(MDARD). A two-page information sheet on the Michigan Food Hub Network is available for viewing on the CRFS website.
The network facilitates:
- increased learning, innovation, and profitability for participating food hubs
- increased access to food hub financial and technical assistance, research, and education
- increased business-to-business collaboration across food hubs.
