Companies encouraged to apply today for assessments
CAMBRIDGE, ON, Sept. 19, 2012 /CNW/ - The Alliance of Ontario Food Processors (AOFP) is now accepting applications for its popular Managing for Success Business Assessment.
Starting in fall 2012, a limited number of companies from a cross-section of the Ontario food and beverage processing sector will receive this complimentary, personalized assessment valued at more than $5,000.
"We're pleased to offer the Managing for Success Business Assessment to help food and beverage processors adopt best management practices that could give their businesses a boost," says Steve Peters, Executive Director, AOFP, adding that better managed companies will lead to a stronger food processing industry.
To date, 40 food and beverage processing companies from across the province have participated in the confidential, one-on-one assessments. The process includes having an experienced business advisor work with management to review their company's practices in several focus areas and provide recommendations.
"Feedback from past participants has been positive," says Peters. "The assessment process has given companies a fresh perspective on their overall business."
The Managing for Success Business Assessment is open to all food and beverage companies with a permanent processing operation in Ontario that haven't participated previously.
