Neil Currie has joined Bioenterprise.
The former general manager of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture recently joined Bioenterprise Corporation, the organization that funds agriculture and food innovation and technology.
Bioenterprise said in a release that the addition of Currie is in line with its objective to increase its presence and visibility with production agriculture and industry associations.
“In these challenging times it remains important for us to continue to look ahead and communicate opportunities with our primary agricultural stakeholders,” says Dave Smardon, CEO of Bioenterprise. “Farmers are often the recipient of the new technologies that we help bring to market”.
Currie’s work with Bioenterprise Corporation will focus on providing advice and counsel to Bioenterprise and its clients, assisting with Bioenterprise investment strategies for producers and producer associations (both provincial and national), providing project assistance for Bioenterprise and its clients and increasing the engagement that Bioenterprise has with producers and their associations in the agricultural and food community.
