The Food Industry Group – FIG -was created in 2013 to unite food and natural products companies in the North Bay to face our shared challenges and strengthen our industry together. 

Our primary goal is to create a thriving and collaborative community, with all of our members engaged within the ecosystem of food, natural products and values-driven businesses who, together, contribute to our mutual success. 

Together we build upon our foundation of entrepreneurial spirit and drive, responsibility towards our natural resources, and love of good food that has always been at the heart of the North Bay.


Ways to participate

Through social gatherings, educational workshops and functional networking, we bring like-minded people in the North Bay together to learn, share knowledge, have fun and let the sparks fly through lively discussions and debates.

Our connections build trust that allow us to reach out, ask questions, find mentors or be one to others, and ultimately allow us to all grow stronger together.
