The Investment Agriculture Foundation of B.C. (IAF) has announced the appointment of Donna Anaka to the position of Buy Local Program Coordinator.

“Joining the Investment Agriculture Foundation is providing me with a tremendous opportunity to continue to work with a wide variety of agrifood and seafood industry stakeholders to increase sales of locally grown and processed foods sold across the province,” Anaka says.
