The Northwest Agriculture Business Center, funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is providing technical support for existing agricultural processors and to incubate new processors of agricultural products in Northwest Washington.
Known as the Northwest Washington Agricultural Processing Initiative, the goal of the program is to utilize long-term business strategic planning to improve economic conditions in rural areas. A $50,000 Rural Business Opportunity Grant (RBOG) was awarded to NABC, which is matched with Washington State Department of Commerce funds to implement the program. The primary objective of the RBOG program is to promote sustainable economic development in rural communities with exceptional needs.
The goal is to develop a facility that will serve as a technical resource for farmers and processors – providing expertise in processing, business development services, HACCP planning, marketing, and employee training programs.
