AFPA focuses on meeting their members' needs by continually sourcing opportunities to study industry trends, explore untapped markets and forge new partnerships. Our team will identify business opportunities that are relevant and timely for our industry, secure funding to pursue these opportunities and, if appropriate, distill the findings into practical tools, resources and programs for the benefit of our members.

Some of the opportunities we have pursued and programs we have delivered in the past include the following:

  • Supervisory Training: provides practical knowledge and skills to work as a food processing supervisor
  • Market Intelligence and Product Sharing: gain competitor knowledge and learn about market trends and opportunities
  • Technical Mentoring: providing advanced or specialized skills on an as-needed basis
  • Human Resource Management: retention strategies and training assistance
  • Pathfinding: drawing on government, members and partners to provide you with resources and contacts to help you navigate operational and market challenges

Please contact us for further information on any of the above services and how we can customize programs and training to meet the unique needs of your company.
