The Manitoba government has launched a new Business Pathways website to support food and agri-product entrepreneurs, businesses and organizations, an Oct. 18 news release said.
“This comprehensive resource fosters economic development and provides the business management, product and process development and marketing support that new and existing agri-food businesses need to effectively enter and compete in the domestic and global marketplaces,” Derek Johnson, provincial agriculture minister, said in the release.
The release noted the new website incorporates resources, programs and services provided by business service providers and industry partners from the entire ecosystem. The Business Pathways website provides agri-food businesses with tailored information and resources as they start up, build, grow and transition.
“Agriculture is a major driver of Manitoba’s economy and small businesses create many of our province’s skilled careers,” Cliff Cullen, Manitoba economic development, investment and trade minister, said in the release. “This new website will take out so much of the guesswork involved in launching, marketing and succeeding as a new business.”
