Indigenous, Inuit and other remote Canadian and non-native communities are being deprived of year-round, quality, fresh produce that is reasonably priced and their community members are suffering a lack of natural, day-to-day healthy nutrition. Communities consistently receive mediocrely, below average quality produce delivered throughout the year. That is if they can even access fresh, quality produce. Produce is often extremely high priced due to factors like long-distance shipping and remote locations.
Many levels of Bureaucracy and the Government in Canada to date have ignored severe and cold climate growers from operating on a commercially viable scale, servicing our most remote First Nation and Inuit communities from within. For whatever reason, it has not been a priority, or in their best economic, or political interest to promote anything but the delivery of overpriced, sub-standard produce and other poor quality fresh vegetables and fruit products to many of our First Nation, Inuit, and other Northern Canadian communities. No other company, which we are aware of has offered these communities an affordable alternative as of yet.
FNG is dedicated to taking this problem on, head-on, addressing community needs with an attractive, viable, affordable, environmentally friendly growing solution for every community, especially in our remote Canadian sub-zero locations. FNG will help communities where geographical location is unfriendly, cold climate and seasonal time is restricted.
The quality of fresh produce in First Nation and Inuit communities throughout Canada are both almost non-existent. When mediocre produce is available, it is usually overpriced. This is adversely affecting the day-to-day good health and well-being of too many First Nations and Inuit communities. To-date, very few policymakers and companies have seemed interested in seriously addressing these everyday critical nutritional needs on behalf of Indigenous people. First Nation Growers will address these crucial needs for every First Nation and Inuit community, regardless of geographical location.
