Ontario strengthening agri-food value chain in Northern Ontario
April 16, 2023 By Greenhouse Canada
April 17, 2023 – The Ontario government is providing up to $100,000 to the Northern Ontario Farm Innovation Alliance (NOFIA) to study, assess and grow the network of agri-food producers, processors, distributors, procurers, and consumers in Northern Ontario.
Through this investment, NOFIA will conduct research and case studies, compile market strategies, host business networking sessions, and develop workshops that will result in a directory of food producers across the northern region; a best practice guide for local food procurement practices for remote communities; marketing support to increase the consumption and availability of local food in northern and remote communities; resources that support food literacy in Northern Ontario and; business-to-business meetings and tours that encourage new market opportunities.
This investment builds on previous actions that support the resilience of Northern Ontario’s food supply chain and helps reach the ambitious goals set out in the Grow Ontario Strategy.
