Is Your Farm as LEAN as can be?

Agricultural producers are invited to attend a Lean Workshop that will be held on June 18th at Kwantlen Polytechnic University in Langley.  The workshop will provide an overview of Lean and describe how it can transform your farm business. It will also introduce the 2014 Lean Training Program for agrifood producers and processors in the Lower Mainland of BC.

Lean has been used for many years by manufacturing companies to reduce costs of production and improve product quality. Companies that institute a problem solving or Lean culture also experience a better work culture with improved safety and worker morale.

Lean is currently being implemented by a few agricultural operations in BC and the companies are realizing significant returns on their investment.  If you are curious about what Lean can do for your business, the Lean Workshop is an excellent opportunity to have your questions answered.
