For-profit enterprises support the food system, from the farm through all links in the value chain to the consumer. Collectively, for-profit enterprises can also have a determining influence on food systems outcomes related to the environment, the sustainability of rural communities or specific sectors of the economy, the safety, health and wellbeing of workers, and the health and quality of life of citizens.
Many for-profit enterprises share values with OCFSN members. Accordingly, OCFSN has an interest in engaging the business community to understand business priorities and challenges, identify shared interests, encourage steps that advance those interests, and recognize businesses that make a positive contribution to local and regional food systems development efforts.
Make your support for Oregon’s food system known!
