Selling Food to Ontario Workshops
Learn how you, as a farmer or small processor, can access new market channels
Grocery retailers, chefs, and other food buyers are looking for local product and they want to buy local says Jessica Kelly, a direct farm marketing specialist at the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA). "Yet, when it comes to buying from farmers and small food processors, they say there's often a gap between what they need, when they need it, and how they do business" she adds.
OMAFRA has developed a series of educatonal modules bringing together farmers and small food processors to learn how to address gaps. Ministry specialists in business management, business development, food regulation and food safety can help business owners and managers learn more about different sales channels how they work and how to decide which channel(s) may be best for their business.
