Maple syrup has a long history in Ontario. With our province being a primary location for production, its easy for consumers to purchase local maple syrup products.
With over 80 per cent of principal grocery shoppers in Ontario reporting that they intend to buy local and over 90 per cent saying that they recognize the Foodland Ontario (FO) logo as representing local grown and processed food, co-branding with the Foodland Ontario logo enables you to easily drive home the local food message.
Producers, retailers, and foodservice businesses are welcome to apply to use the Foodland Ontario logo on their Ontario food products. Branding locally is smart, raises your profile, and ultimately, your bottom line. Foodland Ontario strongly encourages you to participate in co-branding to help promote your local products.
