Ontario greenhouse cucumbers always in season
By Dave Harrison
Feb. 17, 2017 – Ontario Greenhouse Vegetable Growers (OGVG) is launching its annual “Always in Season” winter cucumber program today.
This program signifies the ramp up of production for all varieties of Ontario greenhouse grown seedless cucumbers and informs Ontario consumers of their availability during the cold winter months.
The growing demand for Ontario greenhouse seedless cucumbers is motivated by consumers’ healthy eating choices. Ontario growers have increased production to ensure the supply is abundant for Ontario consumers and retailers.
“Consumers can once again find fresh, tasty Ontario greenhouse cucumbers in their local stores,” said OGVG general manager Rick Seguin. “There’s no need to wait.”
This program is supported by key Canadian retailers. This year’s campaign includes new recipe ideas, retailer flyer ads indicating product of Canada and a media campaign designed to raise awareness of availability of locally grown greenhouse seedless cucumbers.
