Ontario Seeking Feedback to Grow More World Foods Locally

Ontario is kicking-off Local Food Week by engaging consumers, farmers and agri-food processors to find ways to make locally-grown foods as diverse as the people who call this province home.

Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs Jeff Leal was at Heydon Park Secondary School in Toronto this morning to launch consultations for Bring Home the World, Ontario’s strategy to help bring more locally-grown and processed world foods to markets, grocery stores and dinner tables across the province.

Ontario is the most culturally diverse province in Canada, and our farmers and agri-food manufacturers are already growing and producing many world foods, such as bok choy, napa cabbage, Chinese broccoli and goat meat. This strategy will increase access to an even wider variety of Ontario-grown and made produce, meats and food products from other cultures and places around the world to better meet the needs of families and communities across the province.

Minister Leal also held the first consultation session today, where participants shared their ideas on how the province can help diversify the foods grown and produced in Ontario. People can share their input into the strategy by:

Expanding the diversity of locally-grown and processed foods in the province is part of Ontario’s plan to create jobs, grow the economy and help people in their everyday lives.
