We do not accept applications for supplements, alcohol, and CBD related products.

Are you a budding B.C. food and beverage brand or a local sustainable service in search of more customers? We want to help you take your business to the next level and connect you to buyers from multiple market channels, distributors, media, chefs, and other food industry supporters.

We’re hosting the next From The Ground Up Trade Show in Vancouver in 2023! Stay posted here and on Instagram @goodtogrowproducts to be the first to know when event date is announced and applications open.

We’re looking for:

  • New and emerging B.C. food and beverage processors who have never participated in From The Ground Up (preference will be given to this group).
  • FTGU Trade Show alumni who have a new product line or line extension.
  • Growing B.C. food and beverage processors who have a new product line or line extension.
  • B.C. sustainability-focused businesses that serve the food and beverage industry (does your service help solve an environmental or social problem?).

Conference

As a trade show participant, you receive access to the From The Ground Up Conference that takes place the day prior to the trade show. The full-day conference presents industry expert panels followed by a question and answer session, and provides an opportunity to learn and connect with other trade show participants.

More information including panel participants and topics to be announced spring 2023.

“We had such an amazing time at From The Ground Up Trade Show. Our brand-new line of Magick Lattes were so well-received (guidance from Andrea and her team were key) and we were able to make some amazing connections right out of the gate. Our new connections now have us onboarded into some of the hottest local retailers (including Whole Foods!).”

“I just want to say thank you! We are forever grateful and thrilled to have had the opportunity to share our product with so many people. The trade show is an excellent way to help small-scale producers get to the next stage and in front of the right audiences. Thank you for helping new products from across B.C. gain exposure to essential markets.”

Alkeme Foods, Melinda Kopet
Both the trade show and conference were so well organized with so much attention to detail. Well worth attending! I made great new connections and loved getting to meet all of the talented emerging food processors, as well as get the word out about my products. This was my first trade show experience and I have to say it was exactly what I needed as a new brand looking to grow my business.”
