Katelyn RobinsonWithin the last several years NCIC has committed to assisting food-related businesses to help strengthen existing businesses and encourage new start-ups. NCIC has worked to identify market opportunities for businesses to expand or grow into; helped identify funding sources for planning or implementing new projects; coordinated resources for those within the agricultural community; and has helped to market a sweet niche of the region—our maple syrup—along with offering our typical business support services to this sector. We continue to coordinate with other providers throughout Vermont and New Hampshire to improve service delivery and seek opportunities to expand production in the region while making agricultural businesses more efficient and profitable.
