The P&G FHIC will be a HACCP-certified, shared use, food processing facility. This certification is an international standard defining the requirements for effective control of food safety. We have developed a robust program to assist BC’s specialty food producers, while building connections to BC’s farmers to increase their access to market.
The facility has been designed by an engineering firm with expertise in food production facility design and in partnership with consultants in both the food production scale-up and food safety professions. The facility and custom-built workstations have been designed for shared workflow and lean manufacturing practices. With capacity for up to 36 clients, Plenty & Grace is currently accepting applications for full and part time producers as well as seasonal users.
The FHIC facilities shared commercial manufacturing space offers equipment focused on the processing of local B.C. fruits, vegetables, tree nuts and herbs for value-added product production. The facility will not process meat, fish, egg, wheat or dairy products.
