Student entrepreneur supports local farms

Student entrepreneur, Adrian Menzi, founded H & F Foods while taking the Lean Startup course at the University of Windsor, as part of the undergraduate business program. Following this, he was accepted into the 2016 RBC EPIC Summer Founders’ Program, and received mentorship and funding to further develop his ideas.

H&F Foods is a sustainable social enterprise and an online store that provides locally sourced organic meats and produce from Ontario farms, straight to the consumer’s door. Current products include 100% grass-fed Dexter beef and federally certified organic lamb. All of H&F Foods’ meats can be purchased online as single cuts, pre-packaged boxes or even custom tailored .

To further develop the idea for H&F Foods, Menzi became an incubator member at the university’s EPICentre in Fall 2016 and took advantage of the six months free incubation and mentoring offered by the centre. He also received support from the WETech Libro Enterprise fund, and the SBC Starter Company.
