Supporting Local Producers In Grey-Bruce - McGuinty Government Supports Agri-Food Industry, Invests in Local Farmers
Ontario is helping to expand the market for locally-grown food
in Grey and Bruce counties.
"This support will help the Grey-Bruce Local Food Project
promote food from our local farmers markets and businesses. Investing
in these types of projects helps provide our families with access
to fresh, local food, while creating jobs and strengthening the
economy in Bruce and Grey counties and across the province. When
we buy local, everyone wins."
"The Province of Ontario, together with the Counties of Bruce
and Grey, has been a significant partner over the past three years
in funding locally developed programs designed to expand the opportunities
for local agricultural producers, restaurateurs, and other food
related businesses. FoodlinkGreyBruce.com would not have been able
to support, to the current extent, the ongoing development and expansion
of these small local businesses without the funding provided by
the Province of Ontario Market Investment Fund."
