Ontario food marketing support ramped up

Ontario is boosting grassroots marketing efforts for Ontario foods and
strengthening rural economies by encouraging more residents and businesses to
buy locally grown food.

Ontario is initially investing more than $850,000 in 15 projects,
including, such as:

- A media awareness campaign to raise the profile of Ontario apples.

- A "Nothing Tastes Like Home" mobile educational trailer to market and promote "buying local" through cooking demonstrations and tasting opportunities at industry, community and school events.

- A Grey/Bruce county project to encourage growers to participate in the local food market, and to demonstrate that using local food is a viable option for area institutions and restaurants.
