Ontario’s sheep, pork and veal producer organizations decided in 2005 to work together to brand and market their products as Homegrown Ontario. In 2009, they welcomed the Ontario Independent Meat Processors to their group and intensified their focus on food service operators and distributors.  To date, 314 retail operations carry the brand, 176 suppliers, processors and distributors have signed up for the program and 38 food service operations feature the logo on their menus.
