WELCOME TO THE PAN CAPE BRETON FOOD HUB CO-OP!
The Pan Cape Breton Food Hub Co-op makes it really easy to get the products of local producers into the hands of local consumers and chefs!
We are a multi-stakeholder co-op with both producers and consumers as our members. Our 10-person board of directors, includes producers, consumers, restaurants, retailers, federation of agriculture and municipal representation.
When you buy or sell food through the Pan Cape Breton Food Hub Co-op, you are contributing to a more vibrant local food economy and becoming part of an island wide food community!
A healthy food economy that supports a growing diversity of producers on the land and the sea on Cape Breton Island.
The Pan Cape Breton Food Hub Co-operative Ltd. will provide the leadership to ensure a responsive, efficient distribution linkage between local food producers and consumers at all levels. This will create a more sustainable food system and will increase the number of producers and their profitability and viability while improving access to high quality local food across the region.
The essential business of the co-operative is to provide a platform for consumer and producer members to meet. Never does the co-operative have title to any of the products. The products that go through our distribution system are owned either by the producer, or by the consumer who purchases the product.
There is a $50 yearly membership fee for all members of the co-op. These funds help to support the operation. If you are a producer member you can elect to have your membership fee withdrawn from your first orders. If you are a consumer member and cannot afford the membership fee, please contact us!
