What We Do


Food Company & Product Development Support

A key area of focus for the Food Island Partnership is supporting the growth and success of PEI food businesses.  Our approach is to listen and understand the unique needs of each company and provide customized support to help the company meet its objectives.  This support can be provided in several forms including: advice/mentorship, connections to expertise and partnership opportunities, and a streamlined approach to linking you with the program support that will best suit your company's needs.
