The Business of Food (BOF)


The Business of Food (BOF) is a comprehensive online platform developed by AgScape, that allows educators, post-secondary students, and agri-food businesses to enhance their knowledge and understanding of agriculture and food at their own pace, from any location. Its online modules provide an ability to offer seamless, 24/7 access to professional development with information that can be dynamically updated, so learning is always current and responsive. The Business of Food also offers the opportunity to ‘live track’ progress and immediately measure impact with each module containing pre and post surveys and quizzes.
