At its core Starfield Centre is about making the community it serves healthy, prosperous and vibrant.
Our progressive business model is designed not just to produce the healthiest foods at the lowest possible prices but to do in a manner that builds and supports the community.
By uniting our advanced applied science technologies to our progressive hiring practices, integrated educational programs, creation of inviting social spaces and our Core Sustainability Boards, we believe our facilities that will be an exciting addition to life of the community.
Southern Alberta has one of the best growing regions in the world, coupled with a highly educated and skilled labour force along with its strong core values makes this ideal location to launch such an ambitious project.
Starfield Centre is more than just a food production centre it is a multi-tiered education facility.
A portion of the complex will be devoted to developing an interest in argiculture for the K-12 students, in an environment where they can get hands-on experience in the nuturing of plants and the production of food.
Beyond that our strategic plan includes setting up onsite research laboratories and partnering with colleges and universities for the most advanced post-secondary training in horticulture techniques available anywhere in the world.
And because we should never stop learning, the facility will have classes for adult learning as well as workshops about nutrition and food preparation or other topics that may be of local interest.
Starfield Centre’s overarching manadate is to create the most nutritious foods at the lowest possible prices. In order to do this we use advanced but very environmentally-friendly growing processes to allow the foods to achieve maximum nutrition...naturally.
Non-GMO: While we have a heavy emphasis on applied sciences and innovative farming techniques we are firmly committed to NOT using Genetically Modified Organisms. We believe that to produce the healthiest vegetables we need to source quality non-GMO seed stock as well as naturally developing the strains we desire.
Neither will we be pursuing the Certified Organic designation, as it will work against our core philosophy of growing nutritious produce at the lowest possible prices. (see back page for details)

Many of our postions will be ideal for persons with disabilities or special needs.
As much as we desire to grow inexpensive produce we will make sure our employees are well paid.

We're tired of hearing stories where large multinationals have purchased local businesses and then shut them down extinguishing the hopes of those desiring quality long-term employment in their home town.
The foundation of our belief system is that business must have a strong commitment to the people in the community they serve. As such we have a multi-year plan which extends well beyond the expected lifespan of the founders, coupled with a governance model that is designed to promote the best and the brightest of future generations to maintain our vision.
