   BRCGS Issue 9 Conversion - Consulting & Training 



There are many government funding programs currently in place, either federally or provincially sponsored and sometimes jointly. Identifying which ones apply to your operation and fit your priorities can be a challenge. Having the expertise and resources available to deal with a complicated, multi-stage application process may be beyond your capacity. We have the expertise and resources to help you to decide if a specific funding program is applicable to your operation, and whether the cost of participating is worth the pay-out related to the specific funding program.   

Control of your food Safety & Quality management Systems are the first step to success!
