BC Farmers, Processors to Move Online
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.
