After a successful intake of the Agritech Grant program, the B.C. government has increased the program’s funding by an additional $4.5 million, for a total investment of $7.5 million. With this new funding, the number of companies eligible for the Agritech Grant increased from a projected 10 companies to 21. The grants will be awarded to the recipients by March 31, 2021.

Timothy Kendrick, BW GLOBAL, Abbotsford noted: “We are incredibly grateful to receive the StrongerBC Agritech grant. This grant will help build the Better World Innovation Centre where we will develop, demonstrate and deploy new, commercial-scale agritech and clean tech on our 45-acre regenerative organic farm. Our aim is to have business, government and academia focus on real world solutions to improve food security in B.C. and around the world.”
