- News.gov.bc.ca/22355 Business · Food Industry · Agriculture · Industries · British Columbia

Due to high de­mand from BC farm­ers and food com­pa­nies, ad­di­tional fund­ing has been added to sup­port more of the Buy BC e-com­merce ap­pli­ca­tions that were re­ceived after the ini­tial fund­ing was com­mit­ted. In re­sponse to the first round of fund­ing be­ing com­mit­ted in less than one week, the BC Gov­ern­ment is pro­vid­ing an ad­di­tional $250,000 to sup­port in­dus­try-led Buy BC ac­tiv­i­ties fo­cused on e-com­merce, for a to­tal of $550,000 un­der the gov­ern­ment’s Buy BC Part­ner­ship Pro­gram.

The pro­gram pro­vides fi­nan­cial sup­port for farm­ers and food and bev­er­age pro­ces­sors to ac­cess and de­velop web­sites that help on­line sales. The pro­gram also helps cover the costs of mar­ket­ing and ship­ping prod­ucts to peo­ple through­out the prov­ince.
