Prescott-Russell Food Hub


Prescott-Russell Food Hub

United Counties of Prescott-Russell have decided to proceed with a $36 million partnership to build an “innovative food hub”.

This hub will be used for processing and distributing meat and vegetables from farms in the area for local and national markets. Councillors voted in favour of this project on April 22, 2020. The intention is to help meat and vegetable producers overcome production and processing challenges and ensure the growth of their businesses, which has become more urgent with COVID-19. Construction is planned to begin in Spring of 2021 and opening in Fall 2020, expecting to employ 65 people.
