Process This! Magazine quotes Vancouver lawyers, Ally Bharmal and Will Westeringh, in an article about the BC Food Processors Association, and their objective to support all its members to boost the food, beverage and natural health industry.
“It’s been an incredible experience for me to support the industry, to work with colleagues on the board, and otherwise within the organization. Our approach is that we want to work with those early stage companies and help them become the next big world stage company all the way to that next multinational,” said Ally Bharmal, who also helped spearhead the Funding Food Program, which connects investors in the food space with BCFPA members who are looking for capital. “Supporting the industry is generally good for the industry and it’s also good for us.”
“Fasken, as a law firm, is keen to have an innovative outlook, outward looking, and the BCFPA leads support in that kind of industry. It’s very innovative, it’s an important industry for the economy, for consumers, and so we are very proud to be involved,” adds Will Westeringh, QC, managing partner.
