The AVCC Agriculture & Agri-Food Committee will facilitate collaboration and recognize achievement in the agriculture community. 


The committee is working on securing sponsors for the annual Agriculture Innovation Accelerator Award and looking to offer follow up sessions to a Succession planning event held in November 2016.

AVCC Agriculture Committee meets the 3rd Tuesday of each month at noon at the offices of Farm Credit Canada, Kentville.

In 2013 the Annapolis Valley Chamber of Commerce created the AVCC's Agriculture Innovation Accelerator Award. The purpose of this award is to recognize and support innovative spirit in the agriculture industry. The award recognizes outstanding agriculture and agri-food related innovators including producers, processors, suppliers and organizations. The award is intended to help the winner move their project forward to the next phase of development. This award is the first of its kind in Atlantic Canada, and more than $160,000 cash and in-kind services have been awarded to the winners since the inception of the prize!

Award updates: Award boundaries have been expanded to cover the Annapolis Valley and its entirety. As of 2017, we will be accepting applications from West Hants to Digby County.
