Phoenix to turn old landfill into food innovation centers

By Flannery Sloan | Chamber Business News

Two new food innovation centers are redeveloping a former south Phoenix landfill. The centers will focus on food distribution, research, development, and innovation, creating a food epicenter in the heart of the city of Phoenix called the Arizona Fresh: Agri-Food Innovation Center.

“Access to healthy food is still critical. This is not something we can just wake up one day and say, ‘We have got to get moving on this,’” said Christine Mackay, director of Phoenix Community and Economic Development.

The project will be constructed in phases. The first phase of this project includes building a 20-acre park, the wholesale food distribution center, and the development and research space. The latter part of the project will include the building of a permanent farmers market where small or local businesses are able to set up booths to sell their food products and other items.
