AFC Connects & Serves Ag Industry in Vital New Capacity
Portion of profits to be invested back into industry to break down silos
Have you ever wondered what the Agriculture & Food Council of Alberta (AFC) does and how knowing can benefit you? You’re not alone. But those who have had the opportunity to work with us in our new capacity say it was well worth finding out.
AFC officially began offering services to help strengthen the industry this month. Services currently offered include: Leadership Training; Grant Proposal Writing; Project Management; Communications; Event Planning; Poken Distribution; Network Weaving and Mapping.
“AFC has been recognized as a diligent, efficient and client-focused manager of federal funding programs for much of our 20-year history,” said AFC Chair Amber Moskalyk. “We are now offering the expertise developed and honed as a funder to our members and stakeholders on a contract basis.”
Executive Director Bryanna Kumpula announced a further benefit for the industry.
“In addition to offering the advantage of our experience to clients, AFC will invest a portion of its profits back into industry development in an effort to break agricultural silos and connect the industry,” she said.
AFC is a visionary, non-profit organization working to break down agricultural silos to connect the industry. Over the last 20 years, AFC has served as a catalyst for the agriculture and food industry to encourage growth, sustainability, competitiveness and profitability through innovation and pathfinding projects and initiatives.
