New Akron Network Event
Linking the Local Food Industry
This is the first of six Akron Network Events that E4S is planning for the SECOND WEDNESDAY of each month in 2008. E4S Network Events attract leaders from business, government, academia and other institutions who want to put sustainable business practices to work and realize triple bottom line benefits (economic, environmental and social) for their organizations and the region.
On April 9th E4S is collaborating with the Cuyahoga Valley Countryside Conservancy to explore the possibilities for triple bottom line benefits in the local food industry. Farmers, food distributors, groceries, urban gardeners, chefs and companies who are pledging to purchase local food will be in attendance. Connect with customers and suppliers of the local food supply chain and learn about the exciting local food businesses and projects in the region. Are you interested in starting a new business in the local food industry? Do you want to purchase more local foods?
