Considering Kitchen Incubator Program

Chatham-Kent Agri-Development is investigating the idea of a kitchen that can be used by people wanting to set up small to moderate sized food businesses.

Representative Tamara Stokes says one of the problems with setting up small businesses making items like baked goods or preserves, is that they have to be produced in an inspected kitchen.

“We want them to have a safe, clean kitchen to be able to produce the foods that they’re excited about,” says Stokes. “As well as possibly processing equipment if that’s a need that this community wants as well.”

People would be able to schedule time in the facility. The group is trying to gauge interest and has a questionnaire on its website HERE.
