Your NTFP Business Companion — Section by Section

The Companion is organized into seven major product sections:
Section VII Page
  • Food & Beverage Products  
  • Materials & Manufacturing Products
  • Health & Personal Care Products
  • Decorative & Aesthetic Products
  • Environmental Products
  • Biofuels
  • Landscape & Garden Products
Following the product sections, there is a Business Smarts section with chapters on general steps for starting a non-timber forest product or service business, legal aspects, organic certification, and NTFP marketing – including One Hundred Ways to Add Value.  Then the Resources section lists sources on cultivation, plant species, sustainability, associations & cooperatives, education & training, and contract manufacturing.  Appendices cover nursery & greenhouse establishment and plant toxicity.  You'll find Indices by subject, by plant common name, and by plant Latin name.  There are even supplementary video clips for a few of the chapters!

Although the focus here is on Canada (notably legislation and suppliers), the technical and practical information is broadly applicable to most temperate and boreal regions outside Canada which share many common or similar plant species.  This includes the northern US border states and Alaska, and areas outside North America.
