  7. 7. Further Aid Currently, Toronto does not have an innovation centre; however, a proposed template is currently in development. As it is a market leader in North America and is in close proximity to major markets, an innovation centre will be influential in raising Ontario’s food industry sales
  8. 8. Incubation The Toronto Food Business Incubator is an independent non-profit organization that aids entrepreneurs and small enterprises. Its goals are to assist companies in becoming established to help foster the economic growth, creativity, and vitality of the food manufacturing industry. The incubator provides members with access to a production space, a fully equipped commercial kitchen, mentoring/training, and industry contacts
  9. 9. Competing Cluster - Illinois Due to its vast and fertile farmland, the food processing and agriculture industries are well developed within Illinois. The industry generates more than $8 billion annually. It is the number one manufacturing activity in the State, with an annual value of $14 billion. Illinois also plays host to the largest food trade fairs in the United States, such as the Food Marketing Institute and National Restaurant Association. Chicago is home to a business centre located at the University Technology Park at IIT. It offers 126,000 square feet of office space to be used by high-tech companies, including those operating within the food industry
  10. 10. Competing Cluster - California California is the top agricultural state in America and has been for 50 years. As a correlated result, it is also the largest food-processing employer. With a large variety of crops, excellent growing conditions, and increasing demand for prepared food products, California is the centre for food processing, shipping $50 billion worth of food products. California provides the nation's consumers with premium quality fruits, juices, sauces, cheeses, snacks, nuts, seasonings, and many other foods The California League of Food Processing (CLFP) represents the business interests of California's dynamic food processing industry. It is a valuable resource, allowing members to obtain additional information on the industry
