Albertans want to support local and now we’ve made it easy! We are excited to launch a new tool that connects Alberta food producers to the consumer.
Consumer perception, awareness and expectations about the food we purchase has changed. We increasingly want to know where our food comes from, and foods produced locally are seen as the ideal choice. When possible – given price, seasonal availability, etc - locally produced foods are often preferred.
To advance the growth of food producers and processors, Alberta Agriculture and Forestry and Jobs, Economy and Innovation ministries teamed up to create Alberta Food Directories. The directory has been designed to assist community event planners, procurers of food, and those interested in supporting Alberta made foods. Food procurement staff can now easily access details on local/regional and Alberta food producers and processors at https://www.alberta.ca/alberta-food-directories.aspx.
