Leveraging Efficiencies, Accelerating Profit - LEAP ahead with AFPA

What is LEAP?

LEAP is AFPA’s business sustainability program that will drive our members operations forward through - Leveraging Efficiencies, Accelerating Profit (LEAP). This program will strengthen your competitiveness, create efficiencies, enhance productivity, reduce your costs and improve your revenues.

Why has AFPA created LEAP?

Every processor looks to leverage opportunities in order to increase their productivity, and ultimately their profitability. The first place to start is by looking at environmental process improvements. From a quick tightening of your operations, or an ambitious re-assessment of your entire value chain, LEAP offers something for all those engaged in the food processing industry. No matter whether you have a few people or many, produce for the local markets or export overseas, LEAP can help you get your business headed in the right direction.

How will LEAP help AFPA members improve their operations?

The LEAP program is here to help your business. Let us know how we can best support you. We will connect you with the proper tools, training and support, including:

The first step begins with you. Ask yourself - what’s my company’s particular set of challenges? Need to become more efficient? Cut waste? Innovate or create a new revenue stream? Reduce emissions? Develop employee on-boarding? Once you know what you want to accomplish, touch base with AFPA to determine how LEAP can meet your goals.

Where will I find LEAP?

In short, (almost) everywhere you are. LEAP workshops are being held in AFPA’s offices, government training room and hotel boardrooms. In 2017, we will bring the LEAP program to the plant floor, offering some of our members first-hand coaching and assessments. We will share these success stories, key insights and other lessons on our website, in our communications, and on our social media channels.
