the green products centre

In December 2017, AFC signed an agreement with the Green Products Centre in Harbin China to begin providing our Canadian members with a retail food market, including an online service to showcase and sell their products for sales testing. After successful trial of products in the retail store, the Canadian products will be introduced for test sales. AFC will work with its members and our Chinese partners to establish additional agents and distributors in China for potential expansion of products shown to have potential for broader success in additional retail outlets and online services.
