Beef Value Chain | Beyond the Market

Beef Value Chain

The Regional Beef Value Chain Initiative is now complete. The initiative ran from October 2013 to March 2014, working with partners to grow and diversify market opportunities for direct sales of beef in BC Highway 16 region from Valemount to Terrace. the initiative worked directly with producers, processors and purchasers to identify barriers to regional beef sales and encourage entrepreneurial development to overcome them. As an end result, the project helped to establish several new direct-sale beef purchasing relationships, assess the capacity for expansion of direct sales of beef, and assist the region’s producers in exploring new innovations and beef business models that will increase profitability and increase returns to the regional economy.

Several major publications have been developed by the inititiave and are available for download:
