Inaugural Food Island Day a Resounding Success


Held at the gorgeously renovated Clinton Hills barn, Food Island Day was a one-day symposium that exceeded our expectations. Not only did we sell out much more quickly than we anticipated (we were forced to expand capacity not once, but twice!), but there was a tremendous representation of support from industry and from our friends in the private sector. 

This shows us that government, industry, and individuals are willing to all come together for the greater good of the province’s food sector. Absolutely fantastic to see!

Emerging food trends were discussed, presentations were given on packaging, the new food marketplace, and much networking  happened during the (scrumptious) nutrition breaks.
