"We're celebrating Ontario's great local food throughout this growing season by inviting everyone to vote for their favourite display,” said Ernie Hardeman, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs. "This is a fun and unique way for consumers to show their support for the creativity each grocery store puts into their displays of the good things that grow in Ontario."
Consumers can vote by following Foodland Ontario on Instagram or Facebook and "liking" one of the top three grocery store displays.
There are six contests in all, running from May until November, and consumers can vote in each contest. The Ontario greenhouse vegetable display that receives the most "likes" or votes will receive the "Consumers' Choice" award.
For more than 30 years, the Foodland Ontario Retailer Awards have been the produce industry's premier competition for excellence in grocery store display and promotion in support of local Ontario foods. This year, for the first time ever, consumers can decide who created the best display.
